The hour of NO power is nearly upon us! #emeraldFuture

Emerald Home on

Here is a list of fun activities you can plan for Saturday (26 March) evening during Earth Hour when you switch off your power!

Four activities to do during Earth Hour:

  1. Stargaze With the lights out, there’s no better time to go stargazing! Gather your mates and venture outside to open space – check out the bright stars and try to spot one of the many star constellations!
  2. Go for a night-time hikeMake Earth Hour more than an hour. Take the afternoon and evening to go on a rejuvenating hike in one of Australia’s beautiful nature spots. Leave footprints, take pictures, and enjoy your time with nature.
  3. Night-time photography What better opportunity to whip out your smartphone camera and practice your night-time photography skills!
  4. Arrange a candlelight BBQ Cook a delicious BBQ for your friends or family. Set up some candles or solar-powered lights in the comfort of your own backyard.
