Are you thinking about a weekend getaway?  We have the perfect suggestion for you.  Book accommodation at a Manly hostel and celebrate the 22nd Ocean Care Day.  It will be held on Sunday, Dec 6th with a dress-up parade, bands, talks, eco-stalls, the famous Penguin Pavilion and much more.  You will definitely not regret.

It is important to know the fact that the Ocean Care Day Festival runs from 10.30am until 4.30pm on Sunday December 6th, at Manly Ocean Beachfront, forecourt, opposite the Steyne Hotel.

What is there to know about this important community event?  As the name perfectly suggests, Ocean Care Day is a day to learn about the spectacular local environment.  It is also vital to learn what we can do in order to protect it.  Keep in mind that Ocean Care Day is a great chance to push for a Marine park for Sydney.  It will be great to have an underwater national park protecting Sydney Harbour and the amazing ocean beaches.  You will have the chance to meet the Friends of Cabbage Tree Bay volunteers who are protecting Manly’s precious Aquatic Reserve.  You will find out more about a Sydney Marine Park and why it needs your support.

Bring your friends to this free community event by the sea!  There will be more than 45 Eco Exhibitors, live entertainment, speaker stage, kids’ activities, etc.  You will have lots of fun.  Needless to say, there will be also a Marine Parade.  So, come early dressed as your favorite marine creature and you can win the big award!

Are you a big fan of art?  Pop into the Art Tent to meet local artists and admire their work! Good news: everything is for sale, so prepare to take home a bargain!

Come with your kids and visit the Ocean Lab!  Both adults and children will have the chance to learn more about the marine creatures from experts from Manly Sea Life Sanctuary and the Australian Museum.  .

Get in touch with nature, book budget accommodation Sydney and head over to Manly for Ocean Care Day!  You will love it!  There are so many great things to do and see in Manly.
