During the last week of January, John, Mike and Richard, members of the Deanei Forest bushcare team, explored the Deanei Reserve ‘offtrack’. We discovered a rich and beautiful environment with some interesting links to Springwood’s bygone days.
A great place to explore
A surprise find … an elkhorn fern … Platycerium bifurcatum
A swamp wallaby … Wallabia bicolor … kept us company during the morning
In the lower parts of the Deanei Reserve, there is an old road leading to the headwaters of Fitzgeralds Creek.
