Orchid Walks on Black Mountain


Tony Wood has led these popular orchid walks since 2011, and has photographed more than 60 orchid species that are native plants on Black Mountain.

Join him to see some spring flowering native terrestrial orchids and learn more about this fascinating group of plants. There is some off-track walking so wear sturdy shoes. Bring your hand lens.


Sunday 7 October




At the car park on the mountain side of Caswell Drive (from Belconnen Way drive south towards Glenloch Interchange).


BYO enthusiasm, friends, morning tea, hat, sunblock, water & stout shoes


Numbers are limited to 15 for each walk. Phone Tony on 6254 1795 to book, or for more information about the walks.

Happy walking, and here’s hoping the spring weather will bring out the beauty of Glossodia magna or a Thelmitra species' flowers.
