Pick Up 8! Beach Challenge

Everyone is invited to join the Largest…no Smallest…Hide and Seek Game ever!

Join us on the beach as we dive into Microplastic Bioblitzes, Rocky Rockpools stuffed with sea wonders, incredible Shark eggcases and… have you ever heard of the Olympic Games?

If so, we’ll be hosting the ‘Oh-Limpet Games’… a beach sporting frenzy which will test your ‘SEA King’ skills and sporting agility… as we chase Naughty Nurdles off the beach!
