Friends of Sturt Gorge



Home / Activities


Friends of Sturt Gorge are involved in:


Our Vegetation Management Plan guides our work, which includes removing and suppressing weeds such as olives, boneseed and bridal creeper, protecting endangered plants, plant surveys, collecting seed and revegetation.

See our Bushcare page for more information

Working Bees:

Several Working Bees a month focus on improving bushland in the Gorge. 


Our trails working group ensures existing trails are safe and sustainable, as well as creating new trails in collaboration with Department for Environment and Water, Flinders University and local councils. We promote the beauty and challenges of walking in the Gorge through regular guided walks, and the sale of our A3 trails map.


With the support of Flinders University and the City of Mitcham, we have an ongoing project preserving the Magpie Creek ruins.

See our History page for more details


Walks through the park for both our members and the public.

Join us at our monthly meetings, held on the third Tuesday of the month, 7:30pm, at Bellevue Heights Primary School. We have guest speakers, reports on current projects, training, and learn about the flora and fauna of the Park.


The committee is a group of dedicated members who have taken on specific roles. We organise and run the activities of the group, write grant applications, liaise with our Ranger and local councils, buy tools, and promote the group. We put together a quarterly newsletter and maintain this web site.
