Westlake Riverhills Bushcare Group

This bushcare group was originally established in 1993 and initiated the bushland rehabilitation work in the riverfront bushland of Westlake and Riverhills. The bushcare group now works along the Coucal Trail, in Barcoorah Street Park, and aims to restore the area by removing invasive weed species and replanting with local native species. This is an important area for habitat and a popular walking spot with locals. For more information, email the group leader, Nicole Johnson.

Since November 2007 the Horizon Bushcarers have focused on the 3.2 hectare site along Horizon Drive, opposite the Peter Lightfoot Oval.
