Bray Park SHS students visit Barungwarra to learn about our history.


On Wednesday 10th March, we received a visit from some students from Bray Park State High School as part of a geography project which they were undertaking. We gave a presentation on the history of Barungwarra and our current efforts to control weeds and improve the site.

Sandbag are helping us at Barungwarra again.


On Wednesday 5th May, Sandbag trainees commenced a weekly session, helping us at Barungwarra. They cleared a large area around the dirt pile, of weeds and constructed a large mullock heap using black plastic nearby.

Bushies surprised by natural seeding of Gum trees.


At our recent bushies work day on 21st August, we were surprised to find a number of gum trees which had self propagated in one of the new tree beds. Bushie Sue, initially spotted a couple whilst spreading mulch so we decided to put protective guards around them. As we worked, we noticed many more seedlings and had to make several trips to the shed to bring more stakes and guards to protect them. after staking and protecting 16 new trees in a small area, we decided to leave the smaller ones as they probably, were not long term viable. Once they were protected, we mulched around them.
