Piney Lakes Environmental Education Centre is an innovative education centre showcasing the latest in renewable energy technologies and sustainable building design. Set in an urban bushland setting, this building offers a unique opportunity to learn more about the environment and sustainable living.
The Centre is located within 68 hecatres of bushland/parkland, known as Piney Lakes Reserve. This comprises 50 hectares of natural bushland and the grassland and parkland areas make up the remaining 18 hectares. We are in a unique location, surrounded by the residential suburbs or Winthrop, Murdoch and Bateman. It is a place to escape from the noise, pollution and stress of our everyday lives.
Piney Lakes offers:
- Sustainability and environmental advice (anything from water conservation to helping identify your local plants and animals). Staff can conduct building tours for walk in visitors, provide technical information or assist with research projects.
- School excursions (for all ages including Universities and TAFE). We specialise in excursions linked to sustainability studies and ecology studies.
- Venue Hire - an ideal location to host your next seminar, presentation or meeting.
- Workshops and community seminars which aim to increase our understanding of sustainability.
