Help restore the Narrows, Queenscliff

The Narrows is a thin section of Moonah woodland situated next to Dog Beach, Queenscliff. In partnership with the Borough of Queenscliffe and the Borough Coastcarers group, we have been removing weeds at this site for many years and invite the wider community to find out about our conservation efforts, some of the local weeds impacting these places and contribute via weeding and planting of more Moonahs.

This activity will include a guided walk within the woodlands of the Narrows, information about plants and animals found nearby and some weeding and tree planting. The event will end with a complimentary morning tea. Please wear enclosed shoes and weather appropriate clothing. BYO water bottle and hat. Biscuits, tea and coffee and milk varieties will be provided.

Explore the woodland of Point Lonsdale

Bunnywoods is a beautiful section of Moonah woodland along the Point Lonsdale foreshore, home to birds, bugs, bats and more. Join this family-friendly environment day to find out about the plants and animals that call this place home.

This activity will include a guided walk along the tracks of Bunnywoods, a scavenger hunt for kids and some weeding (optional). This woodland has some invasive weeds including Blue Periwinkle that requires community assistance to remove by hand.

The event will end with a complimentary morning tea. Please wear enclosed shoes and weather appropriate clothing. BYO water bottle and hat. Biscuits, tea and coffee and milk varieties will be provided.

Location: This event is in Bunnywoods, the woodland south of Royal Park Caravan Park. Park along Jordan or Williams Road, cross the road towards the foreshore and enter the park via the 'exit only' driveway. Be aware of traffic crossing the road and entering the park. Look for the Bellarine Catchment Network vehicle and signage.

As an extension of our “Gardens for Wildlife’ program and in conjunction with the Borough of Queenscliffe, The Swan Bay Environment Association is undertaking to revegetate some of our local neighbourhood parks.

In 2022 we met with some of the residents surrounding Jacqueline Court to find out where they would like some planting to be done. The Queenscliffe Indigenous Nursery has propagated the plants required and with the coming of more suitable weather, we are now ready to start with the revegetation.

We will meet at Jacqueline Court in Point Lonsdale for a planting morning at 10.30 on Sunday May 26

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear. Morning Tea provided!

All are welcome to come along and contribute to restoring our local habitat.

Join the Bellarine Catchment Network and Corangamite CMA for a day weeding on Mud Islands. Help protect and enhance habitat by removing invasive weeds along the beach and dunes.

Mud Islands are part of the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park and the Port Phillip Bay (Western Shoreline) & Bellarine Peninsula RAMSAR site. The habitat on the islands includes saltmarsh, mudflats and dune shrubland, these habitats are critical for the survival of many species of bird, endangered species like the White-faced Storm Petrel and migratory shorebirds.

Meeting Point: We will be meeting at Queenscliff Harbour (map location here), where we will be taking a boat with Queenscliff Dive Centre from the Marina out to the island. Please ensure you arrive on time so that you do not miss the boat and you can fill out required forms before departure.

Catering: Morning tea and lunch will be provided – please provide dietary requirements by contacting Rachael Beecham rachael.beecham@ccma.vic.gov.au

It may get cold on the boat, so please bring a warm jacket/rain jacket. You will get wet. We will be wading through water around knee height when we get off the boat, so it is suggested to wear shorts/bathers/wetsuit and/or have a change of clothes.

Bring a hat, drinking water, snacks, sunscreen, binoculars and wear sturdy shoes.

NOTE: If the weather becomes unfavourable, the event will be postponed and participants will be notified as soon as possible.
