Sorry for the belated posting of photos from Diamond Bay. A big thanks to the hardy crew of volunteers who braved the damp conditions. Thanks also to the local Diamond Bay bushcare group for again supervising us. It was too wet to climb after the weeding finished, but this did not stop a few volunteers from venturing down Rosa Gully to check out the climbing area.

We’re heading out to Diamond Bay again on Saturday 18th June. Hopefully we’ll see a few whales this time of the year! Hand pulling weeds again like last time. Meet at 9am at the end of Diamond Bay Rd, Vaucluse. Bring your climbing gear and go for a climb in the afternoon. Wear sturdy shoes, long sleeve shirt, long pants and hat. Please RSVP so we know how much morning tea to provide to email@example.com
Penguins, dolphins and a seal visited us at Barrenjoey yesterday!! We’ll have to put an order in for whales and turtles next time. Thank you to all the volunteers who circumnavigated the headland and helped remove invasive weeds. The themeda grasslands are looking great with only 1 small patch of bitou left. We even made a small dent in the asparagus fern. More photos here.
The weather forecast has improved (from rain to mostly sunny!) so come along to the Barrenjoey Cragcare day on Sunday 8th May. There is much enthusiasm to circumnavigate the headland and weed any remaining bitou. Wear sturdy shoes, long sleeve shirt, long pants and hat. Morning tea provided. Meet at 8:30am at the end of Governor Phillip Carpark. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Bring climbing gear and join us for a climb after lunch!
A small group of Mountain Goat weeders headed out to Long Island on 12th March to mop up any lantana and asparagus fern that had evaded earlier control efforts. It was great to work at a site where the weeds were losing! Thanks to NPWS for taking us out and showing us some fascinating rock art and historical sites along the way. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day! More photos here.
Thank you to everyone who helped out at Diamond Bay yesterday. The track is much easier to walk along now that the weedy vines have been pulled out or pushed back. I hope everyone enjoyed the climbing in Rosa Gully afterwards. Here’s a link to more photos: Diamond Bay cragcare photos
