Go in the running for a Heron Island getaway at Ecofest

GO IN the running to win a trip to Heron Island simply by having your say at next month's Ecofest.

As central Queensland's largest environmental awareness event, Ecofest will feature plenty of free activities, displays, entertainment and giveaways on June 1.

From 9am to 3pm the Gladstone Tondoon Botanic Gardens will be abuzz with fun for the whole family including wildlife demonstrations and shows, market stalls, interactive displays, live entertainment and children's rides and activities.

Ecofest attendees can have their say at the event with completed audience surveys entered in the draw to win two nights' accommodation on Heron Island.

Valued at more than $1200, the prize includes twin share accommodation in a Reef Room plus all meals and return launch transfers.

The prize will be drawn at 1.50pm on the main stage in the Elders Greenhouse Tent.

Gladstone Regional Council environment portfolio spokesperson councillor Col Chapman encouraged Ecofest attendees to submit their survey for a chance to win, as well as contribute to future Ecofest planning.

"Council and event organiser, Gladstone Festivals and Events, welcome constructive comments which can assist us to make Ecofest even bigger and better than what it is," Cr Chapman said.

Audience surveys will be located at the front gate of the Gardens and at the Ecofest sponsors' sites.
