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 14 July 2018

WB07frontTwenty enthusiastic volunteers planted 490 tubestock in the Undertow Bay foreshore reserve near Pea Creek. Lesley gave us a tubestock planting demonstration aimed at improving the consistency of our method and increasing plant survival rate.

The planting was difficult in some spots due to the steep slopes but the sunny weather conditions were perfect for planting and we managed to get the last one in as the lunch gong sounded. Well done everyone and we hope to see you again at the August working bee when we will be planting a similar number of tubestock.
