What we do
The group's meetings and talks are normally held monthly at Stony Range Botanic Garden, but due to Covid-19 safety measures there have been few opportunities to do so. However the members have greatly enjoyed Anne Gray's bushwalks. We enjoy both the excursion and the morning tea or lunch that follows, giving us a relaxing debrief and social time with fellow members.
The beautiful Staghorn (Platycerium bifurcatum) grows at Stony Range. After the storm damage on 19 Dec 2021
the Garden will now re-open to the public in February. Until then, the group is unable to use the Corkery Building
within the grounds for its meetings.
