The Sturt Upper Reaches Landcare Group maintains a demonstration site at 173 Upper Sturt Road behind the Soldier's Memorial Hall, which is open to the public 24/7 to enjoy. The demonstration site has been re-vegetated and maintained by members since around 2000 and is home to many local native flora species as well as a variety of fauna, including a population of Southern Brown Bandicoots.

The site is maintained via regular working bees, run on the 3rd Sunday of each month (weather permitting) between 9:30am and 12:30pm. These give you great opportunities to learn about local flora species and bush care techniques you can apply to your own property. Different activities that take place during working bees include:

  • Weeding and pruning
  • Clearing of plant litter
  • Check and maintain bird & fauna boxes
  • Seasonal planting
  • Brush cutting
  • Clearing of fallen branches
  • Path, railing, decking, shed and structure maintenance and construction

We provide all the required tools and equipment, you just need to bring the following,

  • Suitable clothing
  • Enclosed shoes
  • Water bottle
  • Favourite pair of gardening gloves (we also have gloves that can be used)

We look forward to seeing you there. If you are interesting in attending, please contact us at
