Dune Detectives at Taperoo Dunes

Taperoo Dunes Forensic Field Officers Rae and Kym have put together some training hints to help you hone your sleuthing skills.

Take your family to seek out and learn more about the local flora and fauna around Taperoo Dunes while you work through the Dune Detective activity sheets. This is a fun way to learn about the coastal environment through a hands-on experience.

Volunteers from the Taperoo Dunes Group will be on hand to point out interesting flora and fauna within the dunes and to answer any questions. You will be encouraged to discover and explore this local environment, wandering along the pathways through the dunes.

Who is the event suitable for?

This outdoor session is suitable for families with children of all ages. The Dune Detective activities are great for primary school aged children. Adults and older children will also learn so much about our local coastal environment, whilst younger children will enjoy exploring outdoors.

Children must be accompanied by a guardian and be appropriately supervised at all times.

Meeting spot:

Meet in the Taperoo Dunes carpark (on Lady Gowrie Drive), opposite the old Police Academy property. Look for the blue Port Environment Centre flag.

What to take:

Take a pencil or pen to be able to fill in the different Dune Detective activity sheets. As it’s an outdoor event, it is suggested you bring your own jackets, hats, sunscreen, water bottle and snacks and that you wear appropriate footwear and clothing to safely explore the beach environment.


  • $3 for individual adults
  • $7.50 for families (up to 2 adults accompanying children)


The event will be cancelled if the weather forecast is for heavy rain or storms. 

Contact the Port Environment Centre if you have any mobility or access concerns.
