Zero-Waste Birthday Parties

Want a birthday party that is unique and fun, while also caring for Mother Earth?

At the EcoCentre, our venue is the perfect spot if you're looking to host a Zero-Waste birthday party! Our Zero Waste philosophy includes 'Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Remove'. By introducting the concept of 'Zero Waste' through fun, playful and engaging experiences, we aim to provide a positive and warm environment to showcase how accessible and simple it is to live a more sustainable lifestyle, no matter your age or background.

Penguin Friendly Events

The City of Port Phillip and Port Phillip EcoCentre worked with 10 local community events to identify the key actions for a school or community event to reduce their litter and waste with the goal to being zero-waste. This project emotionally connected people to St Kilda's local colony of 1,300 Little Penguins and inspired participants to reduce harmful litter entanglements when rubbish reaches St Kilda breakwater by wind or rain.

Teachers' Environment Network (TEN)

The Teachers' Environment Network (TEN) are free professional learning events that are run each term to support school and ELC educators, staff and parents to network, share resources and connect to the local environment! A wide range of topics are covered, with a focus on embedding sustainability and environmental education in classroom teaching. Emphasis is on STEAM/STEM and inquiry-based learning with a variety of topics covered such as climate change and ecosystems, habitat improvements for local species and plastics in our oceans and on land.

Wildlife and Nest Boxes

Wildlife and Nest Boxes 

Melbourne has an incredible variety of native plants and animals living within our suburbs and Bay. The EcoCentre is passionate about sharing the wonders of this urban wildlife with everyone through: 

Wildlife within Melbourne (and other urban ares) especially arboreal (tree-dependant) and noctural (active during the night) species face numerous pressures from urbanisation. 

The EcoCentre has a long running urban habitat and nest box program that provide much needed homes (habitat) for the following species:

  • Eastern Rosella
  • Microbats (especially Gould's Wattled Bat)
  • Wood Duck
