Fundraising in aid of TreeSisters, and the Hinterland Alliance Supported by Forest Heart Eco Nursery & Sunshine Coast Council Join us for a very special community event and fundraiser created to bring us together and build local knowledge.

At 1pm take a short guided tree walk through Federation Park, Palmwoods, led by Spencer Shaw from Forest Heart Eco Nursery. to discover more about our local native tree species. The tree walk is by gold coin donation (fundraising for the Hinterland Alliance).

Then at 2pm wander down to Palmwoods Memorial Hall to watch the stunning documentary film 'Call of the Forest'. Do just the walk, or just the film, or make an afternoon of it and do both!

Everything you need to know is here: Tickets to the film are $12.50, the guided Tree Walk is by donation on the day.

This is a non-profit event created to strengthen local community and fundraise for our environment. Your ticket price includes a $5 donation to global charity TreeSisters and will put trees in the ground in the tropics where they are most needed. The remainder goes to the filmmaker and booking system fees. We will have tea, coffee and homemade cakes available after the film, and some fun activities.

You are very much encouraged to stay afterwards and socialise! Proceeds from the tree walk, tea and cakes will go to a Palmwoods organisation, the Hinterland Alliance - a group dedicated to protecting our local green corridors and the wildlife that lives in them. Please join us for what will be a lovely afternoon.

Call of the Forest
In a theatrical feature and 1-hour television documentary, we follow visionary scientist, conservationist and author, Diana Beresford-Kroeger, on her journey to the most beautiful forests of the northern hemisphere. From the sacred sugi and cedar forests of Japan, the ancient Raheen Wood of Ireland, the walnut and redwood trees of America, to the great boreal forest of Canada, Beresford-Kroeger tells us the amazing stories behind the history and legacy of these ancient forests while also explaining the science of trees and the irreplaceable roles they play in protecting and feeding the planet.
