Gabo gets a friendly hand

Gabo Island might be a remote parcel of land in the most remote pocket of eastern Victoria but it is also home to an ambitious project to remove a highly invasive weed, Mirror bush.

Through funding from the East Gippsland CMA, the Friends of Mallacoota group are working to get rid of the shrub, a native of New Zealand. 

“People can ask why we care about the weeds on Gabo Island” says Martyn Hiley from the group. “The people of Mallacoota love Gabo Island and the nice thing about an island is that it’s contained. If we can remove Mirror bush entirely off the island then it may not come back, and that’s a good thing.”
