Discover hidden places right on our doorstep
We have some beautiful open spaces right on our doorstep, so if you've ever wanted to explore them, this September is the time to do it.

Bayside's six heathland sanctuaries are some of the areas best-kept secrets. Helpful volunteers are running several free tours, sharing their knowledge and helping you discover these natural wonderlands.

On the tours, you'll see plenty of the flora and fauna that call these areas home, including colourful wildflowers that are just now beginning to bloom as they welcome in Spring.

The first tour is on Sunday 1 September 2019 at Cheltenham Park Flora and Fauna Reserve in Cheltenham, from 10am to 12pm. Signs will be posted for the meeting place and you're invited to just turn up.
