Conservation Focus: Kuringa Woodland is a critically endangered remnant of Yellow Box and Blakely’s Red Gum grassy woodland, recognised as meeting national criteria for environmental protection. Some of the mature trees are over 200 years old. The area contains trees of indigenous cultural significance and a variety of native flowers, grasses and other plants endemic to a grassy woodland. It provides important habitat for a diversity of birds and insects, Eastern Grey Kangaroos, reptiles, frogs and other fauna.
Location: The Kuringa Woodland area is bordered by Tillyard Drive, Kuringa Drive and Kingsford-Smith Drive in Fraser and Spence, ACT. The area runs parallel for most of its course to Hall’s Creek and includes a portion of the Bicentennial Trail.
About Us: Kuringa Woodland Landcare Group is a group of volunteers who aim to preserve and restore the area. The group has been active since 2020 and has had a noticeably positive impact since formed. The group operates with the support of the Ginninderra Catchment Group, and under the auspices of the ACT Government Urban Parks and Places volunteering program.
Activities: Kuringa Woodland Landcare Group meet on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of every month (weather permitting) at either Brophy St or Rochford St, Fraser. Start times are 8.30am in Daylight savings time or 9.30am if not. Activities include control of invasive annual and woody weeds, tree surveys, plantings and restoration. New members are always welcome.
