Black Mountain Wildflower Ramble
Black Mountain Wildflower Ramble

Celebrate the spring flowering on beautiful Black Mountain with a social ramble for wildflower lovers in the tradition established by Nancy Burbidge, and continued by George Chippendale. Discover the surprising diversity of tiny orchids, bush peas, wattles and billy buttons on easy bush tracks with experienced guides and good company. All springs are not the same. The pattern remains but timing and abundance vary with the weather. Friends of Black Mountain welcomes all comers, be they experts or those who have never slowed down to see the somewhat cryptic diversity. We plan several guides, with helpers, who will take different directions. 

MEET AT Belconnen Way entry to Black Mountain Nature Reserve, just before Caswell Drive turnoff - watch for balloons.

BYO morning tea, water, hat, sunblock and stout shoes.

BOOKING ESSENTIAL to ensure we have enough guides. Contact friendsofblackmountain@gmail.com or Jean Geue on 6251-1601.
