Virtual Parks Week

Due to COVID-19 some Parks Week events couldn't go ahead, so we've put together a series of Virtual Parks Week tours, available on Council's Facebook page and YouTube channel between 6 - 15 March 2021.

Videos will showcase the Stratford Knob Reserve, Yarram Wetlands and Memorial Park, Sale Botanic Gardens, Lakes Guthridge and Guyatt and Heyfield Wetlands. Please keep an eye out for them and share with your friends and family.
