In honour of NAIDOC Week we have the Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander flags flying in front of the Camperdown Courthouse. Friends of Mt Leura Inc hosted a flag raising ceremony on Sunday 3 July. Their Aboriginal flag has been relocated to the top of Mt Leura for NAIDOC Week.

It should be flown everyday not just this week

Australian Flag covers all Australians, we are a multicultural society, would need a lot of flag poles to fly all countries to suit everyone 😉

Should be consistent..

Wow

Naidoc Week Flag Raising ceremony at Mt Leura was again well attended by lots of interested people on Sunday. Our thanks to Brett and Richard for their continued support for the Mt Leura Committee of Management and the Friends of Mt Leura in their efforts to recognise and celebrate this important event over the past 5 years.
Today the flag was relocated to the summit of Mt Leura where it will fly for the remainder of Naidoc Week.

We've been looking forward to it all year!

Another great little working bee at the indigenous wildflower garden this morning. It's amazing how good the area looks even without flowers thanks to the regular efforts of our great volunteers. Many thanks... Arky ... See MoreSee Less

It was a fab day 🌞😍 Thank you to all volunteers for ongoing work maintaining the tracks, vegetation and facilities.

hope they don't vegetate Mt Noorat like Leaura. I noticed they have added extra tracks around the mount... like other mounts in our shire, over planted now with long grass a fire danger in summer... a hazard waiting to happen I feel... wait n see..

Would love do this but cant I don't drive 😞 because I have disability

Hi to all FOML supporters ... just a short update about our 29th plant propagation workshop held yesterday. A great turn up of 17 people, young and older, finished with almost 2,500 cells seeded across 18 different species of plants. We did a range of VVP wildflowers, grasses, shrubs and trees. A huge thanks to those who could attend and make this such a successful couple of hours .... including morning tea! Thanks for the cream sponge Gail!!! Our next propagation workshop is Sunday April 3 at the Camperdown College Nursery ... be sure to put it in your diary. ... See MoreSee Less

I’m amazed that we planted up so many! Many hands make light work and friendly chatter. 😁

Thank you all for your commitment to making a difference.

Well done team, apologies I couldn't attend, hopefully next time

Spotted this tawny frogmouth low down in a black wattle at Mt Leura today. If any regular walkers see a nest please post a photo. ... See MoreSee Less

View of Mount Leura from Manifold Street, c. 1875.
And then again in 1938.

Note the original woodland vegetation in the earlier photograph, and complete absence of trees in the second photograph.

Several of the species that were cleared are now uncommon on the Victorian Volcanic Plains - Silver Banksia, Drooping Sheoak and Sweet Bursaria.

The revegetation you see on the mounts today is thanks to the efforts of volunteers and students over 26 years, using indigenous species.

The reserves provide a valuable habitat refuge for native wildlife in highly modified landscape.
