Blue-banded beeJindalee Bushcare Group was formed in 1996.  Since then, our group of friendly volunteers has carried out extensive planting and has cleared large areas of invasive weeds, thus maintaining a habitat for many birds, animals and plants.

Hundreds of residents of the Centenary suburbs (and many overseas visitors) enjoy the benefits of our work as they use the Mount Ommaney Walkway.  This lovely bush track winds for 1.2km, mainly alongside the river, between the top of Mount Ommaney Drive Jindalee and Summit Place (off Westlake Drive), Mount Ommaney.

When do we meet?

Our working bees are on the third Sunday in every month between 7.30am and 10am, except in the warmer months, when we knock off at 9.30am.  We finish with a morning tea of hot and cold drinks accompanied by luscious food.  the excellent morning teas and the social aspect of what we do are certainly major highlights for our enthusiastic members. 

Where do we meet?

On different months, at the two different ends of the Walkway.  To find out where the next working bee is, contact Shealagh Walker on 3376 1287 or email her by clicking here.

What do I need to bring?

Drinking water.  Tools and gloves are supplied.  Wear closed shoes, a hat and (preferably) long sleeves.

Save the trees from deer damage with knitted tree protectors !

 Feral deer often strip the bark off native trees in urban bushland and also off street trees around Brisbane. 

Jindalee Bushcare Group, which restores large areas of the Mount Ommaney Bushland Reserve, is putting
knitted protectors around trees whose trunks have been partially stripped by feeding deer. This is to
prevent further damage to the trees and to save them from being completely ringbarked which would kill
them. So far, this experiment has been successful!
There are so many affected trees, that the group would  appreciate some help in knitting the protectors.
Get out your yarn left over from knitting winter  and start knitting! Or you can crochet…
