Friends of Lismore Rainforest Botanic Gardens Inc (FLRBG)

 All Friends and volunteer work days and Guided Walks have been cancelled until further notice.

Enjoy some time in your garden!


SAVE THE DATE -  Australian and New Zealand Botanic Gardens Open Day  SUNDAY 31st MAY  from 9.30 am to 1 pm

https://www.bganz.org.au/


FLRBG is a non-profit group of volunteers working in conjunction with the Lismore City Council to establish, develop and maintain the Lismore Rainforest Botanic Gardens. The Friends were officially formed in December 1998 but the dream of establishing a Botanic Garden in the Lismore area had been around since 1988. The Gardens opened officially in June 2013.

     

These Gardens are a wonderful place to visit with big colourful information signs, individual tree labels, paths, seats, picnic areas and of course a superb collection of local rainforest and other local native plants. It is great place to take visitors, and for kids to explore - the COOL CUBBY near first car park and SOLAR CLOCK in Sensory Garden are great favourites.  A very new feature is the little walkway and lookout in PALM GULLY at the western end of the Gardens - just beyond the Nursery.  The HOOP PINE FOREST at the eastern end is a lovely cool shady place to walk - paths unsealed but well graded -  take you up to stoney LABYRINTH at the top and the newly installed BIG OLD CHURCH BELL a little further along the ridge. Have a look and feel free to ring to bell to mark your visit to the top of the forest.

       

Late summer and early autumn is a magnificent time in the Gardens - a mass of flowers and fruits!!  Many of the flowers are tiny and may seem insignificant but a closer look reveals that they are really beautiful!  Others, however, are positively flamboyant  and many have quite unfamiliar and interesting growth patterns. 

WORK DAYS AT THE GARDENS are usually held on the last Sunday of each month and every Wednesday morning if the Waste Facility is open to the public. Please check the Lismore City Council website.  Wear protective clothing, bring insect repellent and sunscreen.

At the moment we work for about two hours. We have not been sitting together for morning tea lately. However we can work in different parts of the gardens, keeping our big distances. We need to weed, water and care for our gardens as much as possible.

OUR NEXT SUNDAY WORKDAY  29th March has been cancelled.
