Want To Ramble The Red Gums With Us?

Do you want to know more about the Red Gum Plains? Interested in checking out the wildflowers of East Gippsland? Want to get out and discover some of the critters that live in our corner of the world?

The East Gippsland Catchment Management Authority would like to invite you on a tour around the Red Gum Plains on Wednesday 1st November. Together with Greening Australia, Trust For Nature, Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation, Parks Vic, Gippsland Plains Conservation Management Network and DELWP, we’ll visit the sites of a number of projects funded by the State and Federal Governments.

You will hear about their cultural history, flora and ecological significance.

Our buses will tour properties in Skull Creek and Bengworden before stopping for a picnic lunch at Wattle Point. The afternoon will include a visit to an area of remnant forest protected under a Trust for Nature covenant in Forge Creek. We’ll be on the look-out for the endangered clustered everlasting, bluegrass lily and sun orchid and hope to spot a few feathered friends along the way too.

This is a free event with buses departing from the DELWP building, 576 Main Street, Bairnsdale at 9am and returning by 3pm. Lunch is provided and participants should bring walking shoes, hat, sun glasses, sun screen, and water.

Please note that numbers are limited and the event is subject to weather conditions.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of country throughout East Gippsland and pay our respects to them, their culture and their Elders past, present and future.
