What we do

Monthly meetings have resumed on the first Thursday of the month at Stony Range Botanic Garden. The members have greatly enjoyed Anne Gray's monthly bushwalks and garden visits and these will continue. We enjoy both the excursions and the morning tea or lunch that follows which gives us a relaxing debrief and social time with fellow members.


The beautiful Staghorn (Platycerium bifurcatum) above is still growing well but it is only visible through the locked gate of Stony Range.


Speakers and other events will be added when scheduled.
