A Fun Learning Experience at Long Reef Aquatic Reserve
Spend two hours learning about the eco-system of rock pools for free.

Reefcare Long Reef presents a free two-hour guided tour of Long Reef Aquatic Reserve
on Sunday, November 5.

You can join volunteer guides from the Department of Primary Industries NSW in this free educational walk at Long Reef Aquatic Reserve. This two-hour walk onto the rock platform will have you seeing all sorts of marine life as well as learning about the important part rockpools play in the eco-system of Sydney's northern beaches.

You will learn interesting facts about the geographical features and formations, why certain marine life is attracted to rockpools, find trace fossils and find out why migratory birds travel all the way from Siberia and Japan to reside at Long Reef at certain times of the year.

Who knows what you will find in a rock pool


Reefcare was started by eight locals back in 1997. These passionate people who cared about their local environment have since raised awareness of marine life and migratory birds in the area as well as funds through Government grants. Their first grant was $1700 and they have since received grants totalling over $200,000.

This community organisation now has many volunteers who meet every month to help regenerate and conserve the fragile Long Reef eco-system.
