Parra and Hills monthly meeting - Bushwalk at Agnes Banks Reserve

  • 26 Sep 2020
  • 2:00 PM

The last two bushwalks have been very popular with members. It has been decided to hold another bushwalk on Saturday 26 September instead of our scheduled members’ meeting.


We have chosen Agnes Banks Reserve, a critically endangered vegetation community as the location to continue our current interest in endangered plants. This is a low woodland community occurring on windblown sand from ancient river systems with Scribbly Gum (Eucalyptus sclerophylla), Narrow-leaved Apple (Angophora bakeri) and Old Man Banksia (Banksia serrata) as the dominant canopy trees. Diverse understorey shrubs include Wallum Banksia (Banksia aemula), Banksia oblongifolia, Coneseed (Cononspermum taxifolium), Wedding Bush (Ricinocarpos pinifolius), Showy Parrot Pea (Dillwynia sericea) and Nodding Geebung (Persoonia nutans). 

The reserve is totally flat with mostly sandy paths. Walking here will not be physically taxing. There is so many plants to see that the walking pace will be really slow.
