Event description

Description

Limited spaces available

Discover the beautiful indigenous bushland, lake and wetlands, on this guided walk of Blackburn Lake Sanctuary. Learn about the local flora and fauna inhabiting one of the few significant remaining natural bushland reserves in Melbourne and the best-known bushland park in the City of Whitehorse.

June is a lovely time for a walk around Blackburn lake. While there is always the risk of a shower or two at this time of the year, the days are generally cool and pleasant. There is an abundance of bird life in the Sanctuary with both local permanent residents and seasonal visitors. In winter you can be lucky and spot a visiting Scarlet Robin as they flit about the trees. Tawny Frogmouths are often seen as they pretend to look like a tree branch and Ducks, Moor-hens, Cormorants Coots and other water birds are common sights. Some of the early orchids will be out, especially greenhoods, and there is often an abundance of colourful fungus. Correas, Heath and early wattles will be in bloom.

Please wear suitable clothing and fully enclosed walking shoes and pack insect repellent, drinking water and a snack if required.
