You are invited to join the Messmate park bushcarers group every 3rd Saturday of the month from 8:30 – 11 am. Bring a chair, hat, water, and sunscreen.
This Park is a stunning example of remnant vegetation. It includes one very impressive big tree (Eucalyptus Cloeziana, Gympie Messmate) next to the walking track. Plus two more impressive centuries-old big trees down on the banks of Tinana Creek (these are not on the current path). Messmate Park is an absolute hidden gem. It has come so far since the days it was full of Lantana, Ochna, Hammil Grass, and Cat’s Claw. If you would like to volunteer, learning about bushcare and to continue with the park’s restoration, please contact Sandra Lalor on 0412137187
