Help rid Goat Island of weeds

Imagine paddling out to historic Goat Island on Sydney Harbour this weekend, 1st & 2nd September 2012.  Then spending some time working with others doing follow-up weeding, maintenance in the formal garden areas, clearing weeds, soil & other material from rock surfaces to expose the rock features, weeding around culturally significant items & clearing rubbish from the old tip area over 2 sessions on Saturday.

Then at 4pm go on a tour of Goat Island’s culturally significant sites before having a barbeque & setting up camp for the night.  The nighttime viewing is from one of the best spots on Sydney Harbour with views of the CBD, Sydney Harbour Bridge & North Sydney.

Sunday is another working bee with morning tea & lunch. At  3.30pm time to pack up & leave the island at around 4pm with a paddle back to Birchgrove Park.

If joining & supporting the work being done by National Parks staff & other Landcare volunteers to keep Goat Island looking ship shape is something you would like to do, contact Jeff Cottrell at or for more information phone 0418 210 347  Read the flier at this Google Docs link –
