On Saturdays the 4th and 11th of December 2021, you are invited to join National Parks and Wildlife Service rangers for a beach ramble at D'Estrees Bay. This is your opportunity to learn about the marine life and coastal birds of that area. As for the kids, a beachcombing activity will surely keep them entertained as they discover treasures on the beach. Not only does the bay have beautiful beaches, it was also a whaling industry site back in the early days of the island.
There is no cost to participate in the ramble, however, bookings are required and can be made via their Eventbrite website. Please meet at the Wreckers Beach Day Visitor Area and do come prepared with enclosed footwear suitable to get wet. You will also need a medium level of fitness as the ramble involves walking on unstable soft sand.
D'Estrees Bay is located in Cape Gantheaume Conservation Park approximately 40 kilometres southwest of Kingscote. This coastal section of the park can be reached via the unsealed D'Estrees Bay Road.
