We had such a great day at EcoFiesta in Cairns on Sunday 2 June!
Organised by Cairns Regional Council, this annual community event is a celebration of the natural environment and sustainable living in Tropical North Queensland.
This year more than 10,000 visitors attended and so it was the perfect place for Niche to make new connections and show our support for the local community.
The Niche booth was staffed by members of Niche’s FNQ team Anne-marie Ten Hoorn (senior environmental consultant), Clair Davey (senior heritage consultant) and Jill Reid (team leader) and featured fun activities including an eco treasure hunt, archaeological dig and colouring-in competition.
“We were excited to participate and showcase the local work that our team of environmental scientists and archaeologists do daily,” said Jill Reid..
“Before the stall was even fully set up, kids and their parents were streaming through the space to find out what we do and have a go at the activities.”
The archaeological dig was the stand out activity at the Niche stall with over 200 kids experiencing what it is like to be an archaeologist for a day.
There were also more than 50 entries in our colouring-in competition. The winning entry was Emmy Carlon’s koala and she was presented with her prize money by regional manager, Cameron Harvey.
“We enjoyed the EcoFiesta experience and met so many locals interested in what we are trying to achieve in the local area,” said Jill Reid.
“We look forward to being part of future events.”
