Friends Market Stall - Saturday 4 December 2021

Saturday, 4 December, will see the return of our fun and festive Market Stall! 10.00am - 2.00pm. It will be a big Stall … it will be a Christmas Stall. Everyone will still be keen, post-lockdown, to get out and about and buy some gifts for Christmas so it is a great opportunity for gift shopping in the fresh air and wonderful views!


Friends 2022 Calendar now available!


The Friends 2022 Calendar is now available from our online shop. Beautiful colour images each month of your favourite Arboretum places. They make great gifts, whether for birthdays, Christmas, New Year, or 'good to see you again after lockdown'!


Picnic at the Arboretum courtesy of Ginger Catering!

The Arboretufm is the perfect outdoor site to get the family outdoors during the school holidays and beyond. Or catch up with friends! Ginger Catering now offers hampers for breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon nibbles! And their Coffee Cart will be open Friday to Sunday from 9am - 2pm. Hooray!


The WeedScan Project - Sept 2021

Attached is a brochure on WeedScan, a project of the CSIRO, the Centre for Invasive Species Solutions and the NSW Department of Primary Industries. Given that as many as 80% of invasive weeds in Australia are escapees from gardens (since first settlement), the Garden Clubs of Australia (with whom Friends are affiliated) is encouraging all affiliate members to participate. We would encourage as many of you to become involved. Collectively, there is hope that more than 1 million photographs of weeds across Australia will be assembled, which will make identification, mapping and eradication so much easier. See below for the brochure.
