Every weekend in September, the Fitzroy Falls Visitor Centre is hosting a variety of free talks. Speakers include conservation experts, wildlife rehabilitators, threatened species ecologists and passionate volunteers. They'll showcase their valuable work and projects to save threatened species in the Southern Highlands and South Coast. The subjects of the talks include:

  • brush-tailed rock wallabies
  • grey-headed flying foxes
  • frogs
  • koalas
  • birds of prey
  • glossy black cockatoos
  • wombats
  • spiny crayfish
  • spotted-tailed quolls
  • long-nosed potoroos
  • orchids
  • rainforests

Wonda the Wombat and Cranky Koala will be joining in the fun, and there'll be a brush-tailed rock wallaby puppet show for the kids. Make time to visit the art exhibition of watercolour paintings of threatened species by a local artist. The Native Plant Society will be selling plants.

Don't miss this great celebration of Biodiversity month.
