This is a leisurely guided walk down the Wolli Valley with extensive historical and environmental commentary, starting at 8.45 am and finishing around 1 /1.30 pm. The Valley is easily accessible by public transport.
Along the way we will visit significant spots in the Wolli Valley and provide information about issues affecting it, including the threat to the bushland from the Westconnex tollroad project.
We will pass a number of bush regeneration sites, the Wolli Grey-headed Flying-fox camp, and the fishway at Turrella weir, ascend Nannygoat Hill and take in the panorama from there, stop at historic Jackson Place for an historic video, and a talk about the history of Jackson Place and its lovely sandstone cottages (plus a rest and a cuppa and snack) – and more.
There should be many wildflowers blooming – such as the Wonga Vine pictured below – especially along the Girrahween Park to Turrella section. If you want to improve your knowledge of native plants, this walk will be for you.
The walk is free to members (you can arrange to join prior to the day), but advance registration is essential as these walks are popular and numbers are limited.
