Free Guided Bellbird & River Bushwalk, Sunday 1 November, 1.30 pm to 4 pm Mowbray Park, Lane Cove North. Lane Cove National Park surrounds.

Local bird authority Ted Nixon and Lane Cove Bushland & Conservation Society’s plant experts will lead the walk along the beautiful Lane Cove River and hillside tracks. Mowbray Park forms a bushland corridor to Lane Cove National Park and provides a vital home to a great variety of plant and animal species. The walk will take you through mangroves, Swamp Oak Forest, majestic Blackbutts, Ironbarks, Sydney Red Gums, Banksias and abundant Acacias. Beautiful sandstone cliffs and caves can be seen above the river providing habitat for many species of reptiles. 88 native species of birds have been recorded including the vulnerably listed Powerful Owl. Estuarine Swamp Oak Forest provides food sources for the Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo. You will hear the ring of Bellbirds and the crack of Whip Birds. Keep a look out for Cormorants, White-faced Herons and various duck species and you may be lucky enough to see Fairy Wrens if you are very quiet. We will stop for a snack and chat beside the river mid-walk.

Medium grade: boardwalk and bush tracks with some steep stone step ascents and descents.
