27 Jul (Sun): Homes, Hills and Habitats: A Morning at St John’s, Lazarus and Seringat

Visit three islands-in-one in this special tour that focuses on the social and natural histories of three southern islands. At St John’s Island, where time seems to have stood still, former quarantine quarters and school buildings are a reminder of the island’s past.
Take a peek at the research and facilities of the Tropical Marine Science Institute on the hilltop, where you can also visit touch-pools of local marine life. Then head to Lazarus and Seringat Islands to explore a lush coastal landscape and a ‘secret’ swimming cove.
