‘Thuruna’ is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘together by the sea’ and an apt name for the picturesque Uniting Venues campsite at Tumby Bay on Eyre Peninsula. Thuruna Campsite provides an idyllic place for school groups, weddings and families among many others to come together and enjoy the surroundings ‘together by the sea’.
Given its stunning location and proximity to the ocean it is no surprise that Thuruna is committed to conserving the area around it to ensure the that the sea, plants and wildlife continue to be enjoyed by site visitors and locals for years to come.
Inline with UC Invest’s dedication to build a more sustainable future, we are pleased to support Thuruna’s recent conservation project.
Partnering with the local Council, over four days teams of volunteers, including a group of school children, helped plant over 300 native seedlings. It is hoped that the seedlings will take hold and assist in protecting the sand dunes on the public land in front of the campsite. The seedlings are protected from rabbits and foot traffic with protective temporary fencing. The team at Thuruna look forward to seeing the seedlings take hold and to expanding their conservation efforts in the future.
Bench seating has also been built around the new cross on the campsite making it the perfect space for outdoor weddings and other outdoor gatherings.
