Melbourne Christmas Treasure Hunts

The Christmas Treasure Hunts will be a fun learning experience for individuals, groups and families as a part of the the City of Melbourne’s Christmas Festival in December 2022. Catering for people of all ages, activities will take participants all around the City of Melbourne, exploring key Christmas installations to win prizes as well as increasing awareness of Melbourne’s iconic and lesser-known landmarks and locations.

Campfires & Science: Future Forests

Join us in Lilydale for a unique ‘Campfires and Science’ event where we will hear from experts in the area of forest management, and help us inform our response to government proposals for new Regional Forest Agreements in Victoria. You can also learn about the work ‘Science for All’ has been doing to understand biodiversity in the region, and learn how you can get involved! We’ll also be covering the principles of ‘critical appraisal skills’ for those who want to learn how to take part in the process of creating peer reviewed science.
