To kick off daylight saving and let you sleep in longer on 5 October, the Blak Markets at Bare Island, La Perouse will open their doors at 10.30am. They are also going through to 5pm so you can enjoy the longer days and twilight from this amazing island fort in Botany Bay – Kamay National Park.

Join the new tour guide for ‘Brya’s bush tucker talks’ at 11.30, 1.30 and 3 and hear about the many uses Aboriginal people made of plants including food, medicine and artefacts or join in Dr Peter McKenzie’s free talk on “Why dots?.”

The proceeds from these markets will go towards running the community program “Seeds to Success”, an Indigenous leadership and public speaking program that involves Aboriginal students attending school working with Aboriginal role models and community elders to develop leadership and public speaking skills.

Entry price onto Bare Island, which is usually only open for tours, is $2, with children under 5 free.
