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 - 10-Mar-2012

wb02-100

A very sucessful working bee was held on Sat 10-Mar-2012. With the help of 22 members of the community, a large area that we cleared and planted last year was given a maintenance clean.  We were pleasantly surprised to find only about a 5% original planting loss but noted that we are yet to conquer the weeds - the battle goes on.  We also had one part of the group doing some Sea Spurge removal.

 

Below is an example of the before and after effects of our working bee on just one area:

And the photos from the mornings work - do come and join in on the next one - on Sat 14-April
