Tennyson Dunes Open Day

Sunday 13 September 2015 11am-2pm

Free tours through Adelaide’s most significant coastal dunes with the experts. See what our volunteers are doing to conserve this unique area.

The Tennyson Dunes are 22 hectares of coastal dunes with natural grass and shrub land being the last true remnant of the Adelaide metropolitan coastal plains. It is a coastal conservation reserve 12 kilometres north-west of the city near the locally historic Estcourt House. It displays a large diversity of flora with the presence of rare and regionally significant plants, bird life, reptiles and invertebrates, making it a truly unique area as an island in an urban area.

Film night: Last cab to Darwin

Thursday 6 August 2015

‘Rex is a loner, and when he’s told he doesn’t have long to live, he embarks on an epic drive through the Australian outback from Broken Hill to Darwin to die on his own terms; but his journey reveals to him that before you can end your life, you have to live it, and to live it, you’ve got to share it.’ Watch the trailer.

There was also a raffle with fabulous prizes to be won and proceeds supporting WACRA.


Earth Hour

Saturday 28 March 2015

Earth Hour in Grange, 2014

Earth Hour is a worldwide annual event organised by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). This initiative originated in Australia and involves turning out lights from 8.30-9.30pm on the last Saturday in March.

Grange Earth Hour started in 2010 and has grown in popularity and support since its inception. This Earth Hour event is organised by three independent locals who also have roles on local organisational bodies. We are registered on the Earth Hour website as an official Earth Hour event. This not-for-profit event starts in Kirkcaldy Park (cnr Grange Road and Kirkcaldy Avenue) at 7.00pm and finishes around 10.30pm. The area is festooned with solar lights, candles and other decorations. Local bands play for set periods of time using a battery-operated amp (of course).

Past performers include The Govglees Choir, Sa Samba, Weeping Angels, The Memes, Frans Kat Drumming Band, Claire Gurry and Band. Professional MC Angie Starr makes sure that people enjoy themselves. In 2014, the organisers received a Discretionary Ward Allowance from the Charles Sturt Council, with WACRA as the auspicing organisation.
