16 July 2016
• Can you spot a Platypus, which is being held at various sites along Oxley Creek. This is something you would not often get the chance to partake in and although the morning is an early start, I still think it would be lots of fun for everyone.
• Travel back in time on a history work by local historian Beryl Roberts. This is conducted in conjunction with a walk around Acacia Ridge where you will see that many of the post-war buildings still stand today.
