EcoWalks Tours is proud to announce a partnership with Zoe Wittber

Zoe Wittber is an accomplished, motivated and passionate Visual Arts educator and has completed a Masters by Research in Visual Arts, with a thesis publication on the importance of Visual Arts in the education of all children.

So, to provide meaningful learning activities for children during our EcoWalkers Bush Explorers School Holiday Biodiversity Tours, we have collaborated to produce educational resources with Zoe’s artworks.

Zoe works with acrylic paint/pen on canvas and board and her current focus is on Australian animal life. The patterning she creates is decorative and repetitive, adorning the animals and the surrounds, to frame and celebrate them.

As well as creating artwork, she is SAHM to her two boys during the day and working as an educator in Visual Arts in both secondary and tertiary education in the evenings. She has a passion for education, particularly in the arts and a love of nature based education and learning. She encourages this love of nature for her boys through playful experiences and learning activities.

Sydney Harbour EcoWalks Tours has had a rough start to 2020

As a recent start up business at the end of 2019, EcoWalks Tours not only had to face the challenges of a new business but was hampered by the periodic closure of Sydney Harbour National Park due to the high risk of fire danger.

Although the Sydney Harbour National Park was closed and a downturn in tourism due to fire danger and poor air pollution in Sydney, EcoWalks Tours collaborated with the Northern Beaches Council Manly Information Centre and Sydney hotels and hostels to boost its profile in the local area. As a result, EcoWalks Tours began conducting tours for a range of local and interstate visitors.

However, just when business was taking a positive turn, the Sydney Harbour National Park was closed once again in late March due to the COVID19 pandemic social distancing regulations. In order to keep business expenses low and taking precautionary steps, EcoWalks Tours temporarily closed on 31 March 2020.

Winning this year’s Local Business Award will boost EcoWalks Tours’ profile in the local and regional tourism industry and therefore, encourage more visitors to come and learn about the natural, social and historical heritage within Sydney Harbour National Park.

So, would you please take the time to click on the link below and vote for EcoWalks Tours for the ‘New Business’ category in the Local Business Awards 2020.
