As part of the celebration of the centenary of Tasmania’s national parks, and in conjunction with National Science Week, a four day community event showcasing science, culture, food, tourism, music, innovation, health and wellbeing is being held on the West Coast.
The ‘Bright Ideas: Innovation and Opportunities in Western Tasmania’ festival will run at a number of locations across the West Coast from the 4-7 August 2016.
The festival will involve a wide range of appealing activities, from reptile shows and astronomy themed fine dining, to classes on how to make ice cream with dry ice, and performances from one of Australia’s premier country-rock bands, Ruckus.
The event will culminate with an Amazing Race event for teams of 3 to 8 people and offering over $3,500 worth of prizes. Teams will be racing against the clock and each other in a number of family friendly challenges all around Queenstown, before boarding the West Coast Wilderness Railway and enjoying a free ride to Lynchford station.
The Bright Ideas festival is part of a series of events and activities happening throughout the year to celebrate 100 years since two of Tasmania’s most loved national parks, Freycinet and Mount Field, which were first reserved in 1916.
This is a significant milestone that presents an opportunity for the community to acknowledge its strong connections to these two parks, and the immense contribution that parks and reserves make to the Tasmanian community.
