With the Ranger Jamie team, you'll walk through this stunning coastal landscape, observing sandstone escarpments, sandy beaches, coastal heath and forest. Go dip net fishing in a freshwater creek, catch bugs, bushwalk to Wattamolla headland and build beach habitats for turtles and penguins.
As you explore, the Ranger Jamie team will help you investigate the ways people, places and environments interact. You’ll have the opportunity to consider how the protection of places is influenced by people’s perceptions of those places. You’ll also learn about different climates, settlement patterns and the demographic characteristics of the people who live here.
Ranger Jamie Tours is a licensed commercial tour operator with a Parks Eco Pass.
