Some 90 participants joined BIEPA’s annual “Wonders of the Wallum” Wildflower Walk on Sunday, 3 September, through heathland at the top of Cotterill Avenue, Bongaree. This event is part of the Sunshine Coast Wildflower Festival, which celebrated its 50th anniversary this year.
We were again blessed with perfect weather and many of the flower species were at their best. The groups of walkers appreciated the knowledge and experience of our guides – Allan Carr from Native Plants Queensland and John Ward from the Bribie Wallum Action Group and Community Nursery. There was also valuable input from Ron Powell and Michael Strong concerning the Aboriginal
history of the area and the significance of the various plants and trees to the first inhabitants. BIEPA would like to thank them all for their contribution to the success of this event.
We were pleased to see that this Walk attracted enthusiasts from outside the local area – including from Maroochydore and the Northern Rivers. We also welcomed some overseas visitors.
From the feedback received, it seemed that everyone had an interesting and enjoyable morning.
We look forward to welcoming you again next year!
