I am very pleased to be able to share the poster detailing the 'Come and Explore' program put together by the Mt Leura and Mt Sugarloaf Management Committee. It provides lots of great activities and reasons to attend and participate. Of course our Friends of Mt Leura members will also be helping on the day.
Kids must be under adult supervision and some of the activities do have limitations on the number of participants. Please be sure to sign in when you arrive and enjoy your time on Djargurd wurrung land with the rest of us. ... See MoreSee Less
Hi Sally ... good to know that they are doing well.... Fran showed me where they are just the other day. Cheers... Arky
A wonderful opportunity for Landcarers to visit Mounts Leura and Sugarloaf - and to appreciate the truly wonderful work that the Management Committee and the Friends have done over the years.

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
