School holiday activities

Come along to discover this creative and unique project that transitions landfill into a man-made forest. The frugal forest exhibition is located within Sea Acres Rainforest Centre, Port Macquarie.
Frugal Forest Exhibition
This creative project is an intricate and detailed forest installation entirely made from salvaged materials that were headed for landfill. You’ll see that nothing is wasted in this forest and all materials are creatively integrated. You’ll notice how exceptional this project is when we live in a world with dwindling resources and growing waste.
A team of artists, musicians, scientists, schools and communities across the Mid North Coast have come together to create this sensory wonderland. Over 1170 people have contributed to this project, from making leaf litter to designing massive palm trees and creating soundscapes and videos.
