Malabar Headland - Bush Regeneration and a Walk Through History

Environment & Conservation Ongoing commitment Malabar NSW

About this opportunity

As one of the largest remnants of endangered Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub, the Headland supports many endemic native plants and threatened species including the eastern bent-wing bat and orange-bellied parrot. Culturally significant to the La Perouse Aboriginal people, evidence of early occupation is found throughout the Headland including grinding grooves, art engravings and shell middens. As a Heritage listed site, the Headland is a window to our recent past with World War II gun emplacements and railway cuttings. Work carried out at the Headlands by our volunteers will protect and enhance the natural and heritage values of the site.

Please join us in a fun day of ecological restoration at this spectacular but sensitive Headland. We will be encouraging the return of native birds, reptiles and mammals to an area that has been damaged by human use over decades.

Additional requirements

Please wear sturdy shoes/boots, long pants, and long sleeve shirts. Hats, sunscreen, and water are a must.
