Our last bushcare event for the year is at Barrenjoey on Saturday 5th – Sunday 6th November. We will be weeding on both days (knocking off early arvo) and sleeping in the lighthouse complex overnight. Plenty of time for climbs and swims. Plans are to have a BBQ dinner at the carpark so we don’t have to transport too much up the hill.
Meet at Barrenjoey carpark at 8:30am on the Saturday. Wear long sleeve shirt, long pants, sturdy shoes, sunscreen & hat. Bring water, lunches, dinner, breakfast, sleeping bag, sleeping mat and anything else you need for the night. Water in the lighthouse is not potable. Morning tea provided.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are coming. If you can’t make the whole weekend, come for a day. Please try to carpool as we only have a handful of car passes.
We have a bushcare day at West Head on Sunday 11th September as part of Bushcare’s Major Day Out. Rockhopping from Flannel Flower Beach to Flint and Steel Beach. It’s very scenic and the beaches are absolutely lovely. Meet at 8:30am at West Head Lookout (end of West Head Rd). Plenty of time for swimming and exploring the fort in the afternoon. We have the go-ahead to go climbing but last time I looked there wasn’t anything worth climbing at West Head.
Bring lunch, water, hat, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, long sleeve shirt and long pants. Please RSVP to email@example.com if you are coming along.
Hope to see you there!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com
Bring climbing gear and join us for a climb after lunch!
