Maryborough 14-15 Ocober 2006


The Spring campout was conducted at the Maryborough and centred on the Maryborough
Field Naturalists Club clubrooms. Naturalists from many parts of Victoria were in attendance.

Registration began on the Friday evening.
Four different excursions were offered, repeated on Saturday and Sunday morning and Saturday afternoon.


  • Amhirst Quartz Reef
  • Paddy Ranges
  • Aboriginal Wells and mining relics
  • Havelock Forest and Maryborough Sewerage Works (for water bird observation).


Some excursions also visited the Paddy Ranges Wildflower Reserve Number 2.

On Saturday evening, following the SEANA AGM, Garry Cheers addressed the group, speaking on the ecological
vegetation classes found in the box-ironbark forests of Central Victoria, and some of the
issues involved in management of these forests.

The campout concluded with lunch on Sunday. Thanks to Maryborough FNC for an interesting
and well-organised weekend.
