Noosa Parks Association is proud to host the Friday Environment Forum

The Friday Environment Forum is a public information exchange, provided by guest speakers, covering a range of current conservation and environmental issues. The Friday Environment Forum is held at the Environment Centre at Wallace Park, Noosaville (see map below).

FRIDAY ENVIRONMENT FORUM returns 02 February 2017

Attendance at these forums is open to anyone who appreciates Noosa's beautiful natural environment

and would like to know more about its care and protection

Want to come but can't use stairs?  There is a smooth ramp suitable for wheelchairs and strollers leading right into the Environment Centre. Entry is between Wallace House and the Environment Centre, off the first car park coming in from the Eumundi-Noosa Road roundabout.


Arrive at 10am for a cuppa and the forum begins at 10:30am (finished by 12:15pm)

Friday Environment Forum returns next year on 02 February 2018 - see you then!

For those interested in birds, the PDF descriptions of the forum will confirm whether Valda will be leading an interpretive birding walk at 8:30am, before the Friday Environmental Forum.
