The Allambee Landcare Group, who had donated to our fundraising for our mower and trailer (see the sponsors page) also joined us for a working bee, helping to shift gravel as part of our restoration of the “Giants Circuit” walk. After a morning’s hard work we all enjoyed a restorative lunch!
As part of the Baw Baw Shire contribution to Senior’s Week we hosted a pleasant day of walks in the Park, with a picnic lunch. A lovely cool but sunny day was much enjoyed, with some kind complements from the guests on our guided walks.
Recently the Field Naturalists of Victoria held their annual excursion to Mt Worth. It is part of their on-going project with the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne to map Fungi across the state (FungiMap). This is Sally Green, a member of both Friends and the Field Naturalists, showing a variety of knitted versions of fungi species, and her hand knitted Fungi Hat! For more pictures and information go to our new page on Fungi!
Lyrebird season is getting underway, with multiple sightings even quite close to the car-park. This young fella was seen on the Lorkin Creek Track less than 100mtrs from the picnic area.
Marist Sion (Warragul) VCAL students have regular working days in the Park where they get real world construction experience. This team joined us on the 18th of May to work on bridge repair.
On April 28 We were hosts to a group of Leadership students from several Federation Uni campuses (Ballarat, Berwick and Gippsland) for an afternoon of information and track work. The work was done to help keep the Waterfall Bower Track clear.
Be warned that access to the Park will be restricted due to a road closure of Darnum Allambee Road between Hazeldean Road and MacDonald’s Track from 7am on Tuesday 18th April (Easter Tuesday) and 5pm on 20th April (Thursday).
Detours will be in place taking you via Warragul – Korrumburra Rd, Leongatha Rd and Grand Ridge Road. This involves an additional 30 minutes drive, at least.
