About the Afternoon field trips

  1. Barangaroo Reserve - a six-hectare re-created Sydney Harbour headland.  Take a walk around the harbour to Barangaroo Reserve. Hear about the extraordinary reconstruction of the pre-1800s headland and surrounding shoreline, use of local native plantings in the landscaping, as well as Aboriginal cultural heritage, maritime, built and natural heritage of Barangaroo and surrounds.
  2. Sydney Park – Brickworks to rubbish dump to wetlands wonder Jump on a train to Petersham to see Sydney Park – the City of Sydney’s 40ha park which includes the award winning Sydney Park Wetlands. Learn about the amazing diversity of birdlife using the site including migratory waders and other small birds.

  3. Royal Botanic Gardens - Artificial habitat at its best  A trip to Botanic Gardens will provide you with an opportunity to learn about habitat innovation both on land and in the water. Hear about the research being undertaken at the Gardens on urban wildlife, see re-created hollow-bearing trees and the highly innovative ‘flowerpots’ and ‘habitat tiles’ turning the harbor sea wall into fishy homes.

This is a Greater Sydney Local Land Services event funded by the Australian Government's National Landcare Program.
