If you are looking for a half day of whining, groaning and toxic connectedness then this tour for you! On this enchanting excursion you will be swept away by the overwhelming beauty of what cannot be seen. Visit the former gasworks of East Perth and hear about the tale of Turfmasters and hexazinone in the northern suburbs. The tour will conclude with sunset at picturesque Port Beach — gazing over the offshore petroleum hydrocarbon contamination as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean.
A post conference tour as part of Quite Frankly on 20 October 2018.
