What's On

Bushwalk Jones Road Kenthurst

Date:  Saturday 23rd July 2022
Time:  2 pm
Meet at the end of Jones Road for a 2 pm start

This will be an easy but interesting walk along the fire trail at the end of Jones Road. The flora on Hawkesbury Sandstone here is diverse, and it should be close to peak flowering time.

Rare plants include Leucopogon fletcheri subsp. fletcheri (endangered), Darwinia biflora (vulnerable), and Tetratheca glandulosa (vulnerable).

There’s a population here of Boronia floribunda with flowers ranging from pink to pure white. Unusual plants discovered on previous walks include a form of Phebalium squamulosum with variegated leaves, and a Boronia ledifolia with pure white flowers.

Meet at the end of Jones Road for a 2 pm start.

Styphelia triflora and Phebalium squamulosum should be flowering:


Also Leucopogon fletcheri and Boronia ledifolia (white)
