Council's marine and coastal activities program is offered three times a year during the summer, autumn and spring school holidays. The program includes a range of affordable activities aimed at helping families and children of all ages discover for themselves our unique marine and coastal environment.

Commencing in 2006 as Council’s Summer Activities Program, the marine and coastal education program grew in its success and popularity and is now offered three times a year; taking place at Randwick City's popular coastal locations including Clovelly, Coogee, Maroubra, Malabar and Little Bay beaches; La Perouse and Botany Bay.
