Kirra's green focus

WYNNIE the Wallaby has hopped into Wyndham Vacation Resorts at Kirra Beach and is giving kids on holidays a lesson on how to be green.

Wyndham resort’s children’s initiative allows children to learn a fun and informative lesson with the focus on reducing their carbon footprint.

As part of the resort’s kids’ club, children are given an activity booklet that includes a quiz and games that can be answered by following signs around the resort.

Once the booklet is completed, a gift bag and certificate of completion will be the prize.

Wyndham Surfers Paradise general manager Mike Stanton said Wynnie the Wallaby was a great way to educate children and parents about how to become environmentally friendly in a fun and inventive way.

“Wynnie the Wallaby will help us show our guests that we have a commitment to protecting the environment and I think it will create some excitement for our young guests,” Mr Stanton said.

“It will not only educate our young guests about protecting the environment, it will also educate their parents and our staff.”

Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific chief executive officer and managing director Barry Robinson said the aim of the initiative was not only to educate children about the environment but also to do it in a fun way.

“Wyndham is committed to reducing carbon emissions,” Mr Robinson said.

“We want everyone who stays at our properties to learn how to do the same and be more conscious of their impact on the environment.”

Wyndham Vacation Resorts at Kirra Beach is located on the corner of Coyne Street and Winston Avenue, Kirra Beach North.
