Take a free guided trip to Susan Island rainforests

THE National Parks and Wildlife Service is offering free trips to the Susan Island Nature Reserve this Sunday for anyone who wants to discover it for themselves.

NPWS ranger Gina Hart said following the success of a field trip last year, the NPWS was offering guided walks to showcase the natural and cultural values of Susan Island.

"Everyone sees it in the middle of the Clarence but very few people have ever had a chance to visit it," she said.

"The guided walk through the beautiful lowland rainforest remnant is a great chance to learn about its biodiversity and the efforts under way to protect this jewel of the Clarence."

The State Emergency Service has offered to provide transport over to the island, and NPWS and Trust members will act as guides.

Boats will leave from the Prince St boat ramp hourly from 9am to 1pm, and bookings are essential.

To reserve your place, phone 6641 1500.

Bookings can also be made via email at npws.clarencesouth@environment.nsw.gov.au.
