Waite Arboretum North-West Corner Walk
Oct 7, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Please join us for a free guided Waite Arboretum North-West Corner Walk on Sunday 7th of October, from 11 am to 12.30 pm.
This particular corner of the Arboretum, besides of being lovely, is home to many species endemic to the foothills and Grey Box woodland. A team of volunteers has been maintaining this site for nearly 20 years and as a result native grasses are now growing beautifully.
The Friends of the Waite Arboretum are offering this walk to highlight this site as a successful example of revegetation and regeneration in a very urbanised environment.
Meet your guides at the North-West corner of the Waite Arboretum. Enter through Fullarton Rd, Gate 2 on Sir Walter Young Ave. Sturdy shoes, water and hat recommended.
The Waite Arboretum is a living tree museum, held on trust and in perpetuity as a park or garden for the enjoyment of the public. Planting of trees from around the world began in 1928. The Arboretum occupies 28 hectares and contains about 2,400 specimens representing more than 1,037 taxa, all growing under natural annual rainfall of 622 mm.
A reminder that no dogs are allowed in the Arboretum except for guide dogs, hearing dogs and assistance dogs who are all required to be on a leash.
Come and discover one of Adelaide’s best kept secrets!
