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 13 October 2018

FrontAbout 20 enthusiastic volunteers (some first timers too!) came out for a fun morning removing sea spurge from around "F" break beach (end of Wilsons Rd) and towards 2nd Surf.

We were mindful of the hooded plovers around, either staying close to the water line, or staying up in the sand dunes.

 Thankfully the sea spurge management we have implemented over the last 4-5 years is paying off. We were only finding seedlings, and they were for the most part few and far between.

A successful working bee, when everyone is smiling you know you are onto a winner!!!
