White Gum Gully

For years we could see the potential. Just to the right of White Gum Road this gully meandered through a property and joined Barkers Creek at the bridge beside the Little Red Apple. However, for many years the property was for sale and obviously the current owners weren’t interested in doing anything to clean up the enormous amounts of Gorse and Blackberry.

Eventually the property sold. A young family bought it and at that time we were doing the Brilliant Barkers Creek project. So our project worker paid the young family a visit and offered some assistance in clearing up all the weeds. They said yes (Yeah!) and that began a process that now gives the family (and all the locals) a picturesque outlook. Of their own volition they are now steadily replanting and in time this will be another wonderful restoration of our creek.
