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 12 August 2017

201708frontpageAn enthusiastic band of volunteers completed our last planting for the year in the area between Orana campground and Undertow Beach. 410 indigenous tube-stock with guards were planted by lunchtime. Well done everyone and thanks for making this year’s planting such a great success.

Here's hoping the good spring rains continue to allow these plants to become established in this very sandy environment.

Rod lead a small but determined team removing Sea Spurge seedlings from the dunes at 2nd Surf Beach and locating infested areas that will be sprayed later in the spring.

See below for photos from the morning's activity.
