Guriwal Trail Refurbishment Project

Parklands staff and volunteers are restoring and enhancing our Aboriginal cultural space known as the Guriwal Trail, an important educational, cultural and conservation project.

This is a unique project that will showcase Aboriginal culture in a natural bushland-like setting. In time the space will display bush tucker plants used for food, fibre and medicine, artwork and cultural events. 

Dates / times: every Wednesday from 9 am – 12 noon.

Benefits of volunteering on this unique project include:

  • Be a part of cultural, conservation and educational project
  • Improve your health and wellbeing
  • Learn bush regeneration skills
  • Fantastic way to connect with likeminded people, and with the environment

What’s involved:

The team has been assisting staff with a mix of bush regeneration and revegetation methods including invasive weed removal by hand, seed collection, seed propagation, plant division, planting, and watering.

Guriwal Trail Volunteers are required to:

  • Understand the goals and objectives of the project

  • Work in a positive and cooperative manner within a diverse group

  • Work as part of a team and unsupervised depending upon the task

On the day you will need preferably long sleeves and long trousers, water, sturdy enclosed shoes, wide brim hat and sunscreen

We supply tools, gloves, morning tea and in field training

Note: The Guriwal Trail Refurbishment Project works in conjunction with the Bird Habitat Revegtation Project.
