This Saturday 15th September a walk has been planned for the Ben Bennett reserve on Sugarbag Road, in Caloundra. Unfortunately the wildflowers are nearly finished as spring came early this year. There are a couple of the biggest Tallowwood trees I've ever seen and I've been on a lot of walks. It is in the middle of a suburban area and can get quite busy. Dogs are welcome tooAs there are picnic tables we plan to have a morning tea and chat afterwards so bring a snack if you want to join us. We will meet at the park at 8.45 for a 9am set off. Weather looking good (as usual!).
Here is an overview from the internet.Ben Bennett Park - CaloundraGet the family outdoors for a day in the park.The Ben Bennett Botanical Park features walking tracks which guide visitors through the vegetation communities of Melaleuca and Eucalypt forests, coastal heaths and one of few areas of coastal lowland vine forest. These ecosystems provide valuable habitat within the urban environment as well as providing opportunities for environmental education. The reserve is a pleasant place to study the delicate beauty of the wildflowers, bird watch or just sit and enjoy a quiet hour on secluded seating.Facilities Include:
Please join us and bring the children. It's a good activity for those people minding grandies during the school holidays!
