The natives are gaining a foothold

Take heart fellow Bushcarers and lovers of our natural habitat. The natives are fighting back. I snapped these photos along the Southern side of the Marcus Section of Noosa National Park along Mahogany Drive this morning as I walked Jimmy.


Mother Nature deemed Pig Face (Carpobrotus glaucescens) to be the perfect replacement for the Mother of Millions that Col, Jane and young Will painstakingly weeded over several years. What an amazing landscaping feat, right next to the National Park sign.




Also on the South East corner, some Barbed Wire Grass (Cymbopogon refractus) with the remains of  the Asparagus Fern infestation in the background. (Work for this Thursday.)

These beautiful Acacia flavescens or Red Wattle, in flower along the South side of the Park, seeded after removal of Asparagus Fern and Umbrella Trees.




An area previously completely smothered by Asparagus Fern and Umbrella Trees now supports native re-growth. 



Great effort everyone. Hope to see you on Thursday April 2 at 7.00am.

  1. I am glad to see other ‘natives’ are populating our website.
    Thank you for the new local animal section Graham. I love finding out about the creatures that live here.
