Cyclones, shipping and shark attacks! The Pioneer river has a rich past. Join us as we walk from Forgan’s bridge to the community gardens enjoying stories about the natural and social history of this magnificent river.

Everyone is invited to join us for a picnic lunch in the community gardens after the walk (BYO food).
