Manly's 23rd Ocean Care Day Festival

Sunday Dec 4 is locked in as the date for Manly's biggest environmental event. Ocean Care Day will be held on Manly's surf beach and include a program of environmental talks, music, eco exhibitions, stalls and local art.

With a musical sea creature parade to kick things off, the free community event is fun for festival lovers of all ages. There will be the famous Penguin Pavilion, environmental scientists with a "touchable" Ocean Lab, and the ever-popular native plant giveaway.

If art is your thing, head over to the Art Tent to admire original environmental works by local artists. It's not a festival without music and you can enjoy live local musicians on the music stage. 

The Environment Centre tent will have a huge array of environment material, as well as award-winning Friends of Cabbage Tree Bay volunteers who are looking after Manly's stunning no-take aquatic reserve. 

Ocean Care Day runs from 10.30am until 4.30pm on Sunday December 4, Manly Beach front.
