Come and join us for a morning of family fun! Meet native animals and enjoy free face-painting with the fabulous Zoo to You, and enjoy great live music and cane toad races with the popular Doyle Family Fun Show.
Watch a trained super-sleuth odour detection dog sniff out tramp ants, and learn about all kinds of weeds and pests and how to control them with Biosecurity Queensland, Conservation Volunteers, Cairns Regional Council, Cairns Men’s Shed Association and the Wet Tropics Management Authority.
Free gifts for every household that brings in the smallest ant (1-2mm) or yellowest ant (yellow crazy ants look like small green tree ants but yellow-brown in colour) from their house or yard for identification. The ant should be killed with a knock-down spray (not squashed) and placed in a small clear plastic container. . All ant collectors who register on the day will be automatically entered into our random prize draw! Gifts and prizes include free dump passes, t-shirts, pens, stubby holders, USB sticks and more!
