This coming July OCCA will be hosting the biennial Peaks to Points Festival (P2P) thanks to generous funding from Brisbane City Council and Festival sponsors. Peaks to Points is a celebration of community efforts in protecting and caring for the environment in catchments on the south side of the Brisbane River. The Festival features two weeks of activities and events in Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich and Redlands and aims to showcase existing actions and sites while raising awareness of issues in and around our natural areas. The involvement of OCCA and other community environment groups enables us to connect with and engage the community in focusing on environmental issues in their local area.
The festival runs from Saturday 14th July – Sunday 29th July.
To officially open the festival, a Family Fun Day involving live music, activities, and stalls will occur on the 15th July at the Oxley Creek Common. Over the two-week period, there will be various activities including tours, educational speakers and the chance for some hands-on involvement across the South-East. No matter where your environmental interests lie, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
OCCA will have our own stall in amongst the booths participating in Family Fun Day so be sure to drop by and say hello.
We are in the process of finalising the Festival Program so if you would like to host an event, have a stall at the Family Day and collaborate with likeminded groups please fill out this Expression of Interest Form and return to the address listed at the top.
