Exciting news - the City of Hobart Bushcare program has a new Bushcare group dedicated to developing and maintaining a sustainable mountain bike track network in Hobart. 

The group has two working bees coming up that we’d like to invite you to participate in. 

Tip Top Track maintenance + welcome to Bushcare BBQ

Come join us where it all began - Tip Top.  There’s plenty of things to be done to help maintain the current track. Over a BBQ lunch, you’ll also have the opportunity to talk with the Bushcare Coordinator (Lisa Cawthen) about how this new group will operate, who might step into the roles of group convenors, and maybe even come up with a group name!   

When                          Sunday 3 May 2015, 9am - 3pm (you don’t have to come for the whole session)

Where                         South Hobart -Go to the top of Old Farm Road and meet us at the car park.  Car parking is limited so car pool or ride if possible. From the car park you will be directed through the gate into Wellington Park. Turn right and ride, or walk, up the Main Fire Trail to the junction with a fire trail that runs along the ridge to the right. Head down this fire trail to where you will see a council vehicle parked at the meeting point. We will post signs in case you are running late.If you know where the Tip Top track is then just head to the top for a 9am start.

What to bring            A sturdy pair of work boots (steel-cap), long trousers, long-sleeved shirt, hat, drinking water, and plenty of enthusiasm.

IMPORTANT - If you are not registered as a City of Hobart Volunteer (i.e. you don’t volunteer with a Council program or didn’t work on Tip Top), you will need to do this before you can be involved. Don’t worry – it doesn’t take long.  It can be done on the day if  you arrive 30 minutes before the working bee. Alternatively contact the Bushcare team on 6238 2884 or via email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  and we can arrange a lunch time induction session in the City before the working bee.

If you want to keep up to date on the latest events, please follow our Facebook page or keep your eyes peeled for our seasonal Bushcare update which contains the latest working bee program and newsletter on our website.
