Ross and Lyn George have kindly allowed us to visit their Georges Hill property that is located in the Barrabool Hills, adjacent to the Barwon River. The property retains some remnant vegetation that has been enhanced by substantial planting over many years. In addition, we will visit the ancient greenstone quarry that was the source of the hard Cambrian era stone used by the Wadawarrung for tool-making. Steve Murphy has been a consultant in the revegetation of the Barrabool Hills area and he will join Ross to lead us on the excursion.

Meet: at the carpark at Ross and Lyns’ house ‘Barraview’, 130 Georges Rd, Barrabool. Follow the long driveway to the house.
Bring: Morning tea, drinks, snacks. Wet weather gear, hat, binoculars, sunscreen, camera and field guides.
