Put some Spring in your step with the Wildflower Festival

Sunshine Coast residents and visitors are invited to explore the region’s natural beauty as part of the 2012 Sunshine Coast Spring Wildflower Festival, on from 26 August to 2 September.
 
Sunshine Coast Council has partnered with a number of local community groups to offer 12 guided walks for the festival, including a walk through the colourful heathland of Marcus High Dunes to enjoy panoramic views of Lake Weyba.
 
Bookings for the guided walks are now open and are essential. Visit www.community.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/events to book your spot. Places are limited.
 
Environment Portfolio Councillor Tony Wellington said the festival is an opportunity to learn more about the natural environment of our region.
 
“The Wildflower Festival offers a chance to explore the exquisite range of native flowering plants that our local ecosystems support,” he said.
 
“In late August our region puts on a fantastic show of natural colour and beauty.”
