49th Black Mountain Spring Wildflower Ramble

You are here

Saturday, 10 October 2020 - 9:30am to Sunday, 11 October 2020 - 11:45am

Celebrate the spring flowering on beautiful Black Mountain with a social ramble for wildflower lovers in the tradition established by Nancy Burbidge, and continued by George Chippendale. Discover the surprising diversity of tiny orchids, bush peas, wattles and billy buttons on easy bush tracks with experienced guides and good company. All springs are not the same. The pattern remains but timing and abundance vary with the weather. Friends of Black Mountain welcomes all comers, be they experts or those who have never slowed down to see the somewhat cryptic diversity. We plan several guides, with helpers, who will take different directions.

Location:  Belconnen Way entry just before Caswell Drive turnoff - watch for balloons or banners
