 OCTOBER HOH OUTING TO GOSFORD REPTILE PARK

As you may remember we decided for alternate years to visit Featherdale and Gosford Reptile Park, this year we go to Gosford for this outing.

What is offering, that we think you will enjoy if we arrive by 12 noon are:          

12:00          Lorikeet feeding

12:30          Tasmanian Devils

1pm             Lunch, there is no café in the grounds so suggest we take sandwiches, also thermos flasks of coffee. Otherwise we go to Café at Somersby or Kariong, but this would add another $20-$25 per person to cost.

1:30             Crocodile feeding

2pm             Koalas

2:15             Reptile show

2:45             Photos with alligators, pythons and koalas.

3pm             Leave for home

 

Date:           Saturday 27th October 2018 – 12 noon.

 

Venue:        Gosford Reptile Park, Lot 69 Pacific Hwy, Somersby.

 

Cost:           $30, although if we have 15 people we can get in for $25 each, for group. Support and volunteers go free with Companion Cards.

Please advise Janne janneb@iinet.net.au or on 0432 5709 210

phone or text ASAP, so I can organise buses/cars needed,

including Volunteers.  Can you also let me know so that I can

organise support needed.
