What we do

Monthly meetings had 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 after lockdown. 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 at Stony Range, which remains open.


Walks and other events from October onwards will be listed here when it's possible to hold them.

Oct 16

9.30 am

First event after the lockdown period:

A lovely 2 km wooded walk from Aumuna Road, Terrey Hills. Towering Angophoras, grass trees, rock ledges and enough wild flowers to pique your interest. Bring morning tea & walking poles if you have them. Registration and vaccination certificate essential. Email Anne Gray.
