Don your gardening gloves, embrace the outdoors and lend us a hand to help plant native plants along the banks of the Macquarie Wambuul River.


Commencing at 10am at Rankens Bridge and O'Keefe Parks (Ego Bridge), adults and kids alike can help plant native trees, shrubs and grasses that once mature will provide important habitat for local wildlife, and improve the health of this much loved river. Council will also have free BBQ lunch afterwards.


No experience is needed and all plants and equipment are provided. Please bring water, sunscreen, and a hat and wear suitable shoes, and clothing for being outdoors. To ensure safe hygiene practices we ask that you please bring along your own gardening gloves. Council will provide hand washing facilities. The event will go ahead in light rain, so please bring a raincoat if required. All children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult carer.

Location Rankens Bridge - O'Keefe Parks, Eglinton Road, Abercrombie NSW 2795
