Malabar Headland National Park
Join up

Malabar Headland National Park contains one of the last stands of a relic of vegetation once found throughout the Sydney area: Eastern Suburbs banksia scrub. Do you live in Sydney? Are you interested in volunteering for bush regeneration to help conserve this now rare plant community?

The area has officially been a national park since late 2012, but Friends of Malabar Headland formed in 2000 to protect this site. It has a significant natural and cultural heritage.

There are 2 bushcare groups. One concentrates on the park’s eastern section, and the other on the western section. Join them and help remove noxious weeds and restore native habitat. At the same time, you’ll meet new people, get extra exercise, and enjoy some fresh coastal air.

No prior experience is necessary, and training and tools are provided.
