Phillip Island is most famous for its colony of penguins that return home nightly to the safety of their burrows. You’ll have the opportunity to see this event along with taking part in a beach clean-up, hear a talk on reducing your personal impact, and meander with koalas at the Koala Reserve.

Return to Melbourne: Around 11:30pm
What to bring: drinking water, clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty in, closed-toe shoes, keep cup for those takeaway coffees.
We believe that beach clean-ups are great, however, if all we ever do is clean, that’s all we’ll ever do. Hence, we include an invaluable zero-waste talk focusing on how we can reduce our own personal impact. The data collected from our beach clean-up will be submitted into the Australian Marine Data Initiative with Tangaro Blue, which works toward change at a Government level through source reduction. We believe these events are wholesome and send a great message to attendees and onlookers to look after our earth and to start the process of thinking what our impact is and how we can be part of the solution.
