ACT Monaro Riverina Branch: A visit to Callum Brae

14 May 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm AEST

Although Callum Brae is located on the intersection of Mugga Lane and Narrabundah Lane in Symonston it is not well known.

We invite members to bring along friends for a gentle guided walk to see some magnificent old Yellow Box and Blakely’s Red Gum trees in a grassland habitat – a precious remnant of the Canberra landscape at the time farming began in the region. Keep a look out for Scarlet Robins and Flame Robins, amongst other bird species which have been recorded here – a favourite location for bird watchers. Our destination will be three little buildings, and their purpose will be explained, before we return to the Reserve entrance. The walk and talk will take approximately 1 hour.

After the walk enjoy a BYO afternoon tea and a chat. Please bring a folding chair, a thermos, and something to share for afternoon tea. Leave these in your car until we return from the walk.

Directions: The entrance to the Reserve is in Narrabundah Lane, Symonston, where there is plenty of roadside parking. Meet inside the gate at 2.00pm.

Cost: This is a free event.

Bookings: Are essential, please book through Trybooking.

More information: Margie Bourke, 0417 668 563.
