There’s a new series of tours that take advantage of what’s on offer in Copeland Tops State Conservation Area.
As part of the “Hidden Treasures” tours, Gloucester Visitor Information Centre (VIC) and National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) kicked off the first bush tucker tour on Saturday, June 9.
New volunteers guides, Glenn Jonas and Boe Clarke have joined the growing list of volunteers who run tours in Copeland.
Glenn and Boe bring with them a connection to their Aboriginal culture, learning about the natural goodies in the Copeland bush.
Steve Brereton, an Aboriginal culture and language teacher for the Department of Education, ran the tour giving Glenn and Boe a chance to learn all the bits they need for when they run the tours themselves.
The new tour is one of three new tours due to be on offer at various times throughout the year.
NPWS ranger for Copeland, Coralie De Angelis has been working on developing new tours for the area and worked with Steve to develop the bush tucker tour.
Other tours getting ready to launch are a rainforest tour and a twilight tour, which looks to celebrating the night creatures in the area, including the glow worms.
All these tours are on top of the popular Copeland Mine tours which typically runs on a Wednesday or Saturday.
