Flying High at Currimundi for World Environment Day

The skies over Currimundi Beach will be ablaze with colour again on Saturday 4th June to celebrate World Environment Day.

The Currimundi Catchment Care Group is hosting an afternoon of kite-making and kite-flying on the sand dunes of Currimundi Lake entrance from 1.30 to 3.30pm.

Kids love making and flying kites and they are a wonderful alternative to balloons for parties and outdoor functions especially near waterways.  Kites are colourful, kites fly high in the sky, but kites go home with their owners.

President of the Currimundi Catchment Care Group, David Allan, said he was pleased that people are gradually getting the message that discarded balloons, which are often found in our waterways and along the banks, are causing widespread damage to the local fish and fauna when ingested, especially to the loggerhead turtles nesting on Currimundi and Wurtulla beaches

This event was first held in 2010 and attended by over 200 people.  This year the Currimundi Catchment Care Group has joined with Friends of Currimundi Lake to organise the kite flying day with financial support from the Sunshine Coast Regional Council.  

Kids will be able to construct their kites, decorate them with an environmental theme, and of course fly them.  It’s a great way for kids and their parents to learn more about how to preserve the natural environment and the native wildlife. After all, that’s what attracts people to live here in the first place.
