A great night, very interesting

clever lady

What a great weekend...thank you Alison and Becky and associates..learned such a lot and have a new understanding of the bush..called in at the Rlph Illidge Sanctuary on the way home, eager to find fungi.

Hi all ... what a fantastic day was had by so many people from so many different places. The 2019 Four Peaks Challenge today was our best yet with over 100 people of varying ages participating in walking... or RUNNING... up Mt Leura, Mt Sugarloaf, Mt Elephant and Mt Noorat. A big well done to John and his team for organising and promoting the event so well. We can look forward to our next 4PC in 2020. I have posted just a few photos from early in the day and look forward to seeing lots more photos posted by other participants. I reckon lots of us will sleep extra well tonight. Arky. ...

Thank you so much organisers of the 4peaks challenge we had a ball 😊 we won’t mention x5peaks tonight Angela Cunningham Laura Stevenson Georgia Clissold Tracey Stevenson but tomorrow maybe 😂

A great day

What a great active community day. Loved the challenge & plan to make a weekend of it next year too. Friends of Mt Leura have done a great job at Mt Leura/Sugarloaf, can't believe I'd never been up them & we even saw a wallaby!

A wonderful day! ... thanks so much for all the hard work organising and publicising the event. Perfect weather. Awesome views! Serious running! Next year ... Five Peaks Challenge ... Mt Shadwell ... it was open to the public today, so what do you reckon!?!?!😊

Thank you to the organisers - what a fun and unique event and the weather was magnificent. Congratulations to all who made it to the top of all 4.

It was a lovely day. Thanks to all organisers.

Sweet Bursaria.

This species will provide important mid-story habitat for native birds.

once you collect, what do you do next for germination please?

No seed pre treatment required. But it is a winter germinating species. So, sow the seed and wait patiently for the shortest day or simulate winter by putting germination trays in the fridge.
