Sustainable fun for the whole family
THE Peaks to Points Festival is set to return this July, with a jam-packed program featuring over 35 family friendly events.
The 16-day environmental festival features a variety of fun hands-on activities from Flinders Peak near Ipswich across the south side of the Brisbane River, to Moreton Bay.
Events range from bush walks, tree plantings and bird spotting to bus tours, workshops and other great eco-activities focusing on our natural environment and sustainable living.
The majority of the events are completely free and provide parents and excellent opportunity to get the kids out into nature and get their hands dirty.
A highlight of the festival will feature a free family day presented by Brisbane MarketPlace at the Oxley Creek Common on July 15, from 10am to 3pm.
The day will feature kids' activities, baby farm animals, face painting, sustainability exhibitors along with delicious food trucks and live entertainment.
The festival coincides at an important time, with Brisbane City Council announcing they will phase-out single-use plastics, including plastic bottles and balloons from all council-sponsored events. As well as the Queensland Governments state-wide ban on single-use plastic bags from July 1.
