It’s on again – Nogoa November! Bring the family for a free, fun day on Saturday 24 November at the Emerald Botanic Gardens.
Discover the river like never before on a guided kayak tour, go on a gardens treasure hunt or kick back for a social coffee while the kids enjoy the fun fair.
Central Highlands Regional Council Mayor Kerry Hayes said the event is all about celebrating Emerald’s popular recreational space.
‘The Emerald Botanic Gardens are 30 years young this year so if that is not a reason to celebrate,’ he said.
‘Over the past year, council has also completed works to revitalise the river and gardens.
‘We’ve cleared a section of the river to open it up for kayaking and recently installed the new playground, fitness and barbecue area.
‘I encourage everyone to come along to enjoy the fun and educational activities for children of all ages and see what our river and botanic gardens have to offer.
‘And be sure to bring swimmers, towels and sunscreen, as there will be water play and kayaking!’
Activities run from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm on the west-side Emerald Botanic Gardens, near the Vince Lester Bridge. In wet weather, the event will be relocated to the carpark at McIndoe Park.
