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 5: 14-Aug-10

The fifth Working Bee was held on 14-Aug and was another productive day with about 18 people turning up to plant some 740 seedlings.

The area - known as Royal Gully - was the one we cleared of woody weeds during the Working Bee of 8-May- see map right.  It is such a pleasure to complete the cycle by re-plantng native species in an area previously over-run by weeds.
