Sunday, 1 March 2015 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

We are holding a Clean Up Australia Day event on Sunday 1st March. Please join us to clean up the car park area and pond at Point Hut Crossing. Meet at 9am and bring gloves, bags and tongs. Hope to see you there!

We love Point Hut Crossing, we love the river and the surroundings. We love swimming there, having picnics, walking our dogs there, looking out for birds and other wildlife, and the beautiful plants that surprise us in Spring and give us pleasure throughout the year.

Come and help us take care of this special place!

The seed crop of Clustered Everlastings, Chrysocephalum semipapposum, is at peak. If you have an hour of spare time in the morning of either Friday or Sunday please come along and help Friends of Mt Majura harvesting.

The perennial forb Clustered Everlasting is one of the few ground cover species that is not grazed by kangaroos and rabbits. We use the species to re-vegetate degraded sites that have a high presence of herbivores such as the grassy woodland behind The Fair in North Watson, the Majura paddock and the old sheep camp at Mt Majura’s ridge.
