Weather Forecast

Waring Wombat Season [Apr-Jul]

Cool, rainy days follow misty mornings. The time of highest rainfall and lowest temperatures.  Waring (wombats) emerge to bask and graze in the sunshine.

Bulen-bulen (Superb Lyrebird) males perform their courtship displays.

Hearts of Kombadik (Soft Tree-ferns) are the major food when no fruits are available.

Days are short and nights are long.

The constellation of Sagittarius rises in the southeast after sunset, indicating the mid point of cold weather.

Working Bee 8 July 2017

 1707frontpageA big thanks to the 23 enthusiastic volunteers who made our first "planting" working bee for 2017 a huge success. We put in 370 locally indigenous plants ranging from grasses and ground covers to coast banksias which can grow to 10+ metres.

 Click on the title to read more and look at the photos.

 


We even had time to watch 3 majestic humpback whales making their way eastwards along the coast with a commentary by Geoff Glare.

Geoff also gave us a short but informative tour of nearby areas that the CPRRA had previously planted to show how well the plants grow. Very rewarding!

More planting in the adjacent area is planned for the August working bee.

See below for photos from the morning's activity.
