Who can forget our devastating New Year’s Eve bushfire in 2019?
Now’s the time to start preparing your property to ensure you and our community are safe.
Kelwyn White from the RFS made this new video for us - download it here.

Many, many thanks to all 21 people who threw themselves into today’s working bee.
They ranged in age from 10 to 87 - great to meet so many new people! After two hours of hard work, they’d shifted three piles of mulch and planted 80 natives.
A great job! Thanks to Jane Enright for organising and Emma Platyus from Council for our plants.
If you think you’ve seen a whale recently, then you probably have! There’ve been regular sightings of migrating whales over the last few weeks, with high numbers heading north to breed. A magnificent humpback on the right!
Always a thrill to see...

The creek is still brown and muddy! Despite the developers’ extra measures to contain sediment runoff, after another heavy downpour it’s clear that the problem is by no means fixed.
We’ve notified Council that the extra measures are not working - and we’re meeting the Rosedale Farm developer this week.
Meanwhile David Boardman and Pete Ward are putting together our own monitoring plan.

The creek is brown and muddy after silt runoff from developments to the west. The photo on the right (taken from the sewerage pump station across George Bass Drive) shows the silt laden runoff overflowing the silt barrier. Environmental controls are not working.
We first contacted Council on April 19 - they are monitoring water quality and preparing a report. Rangers have been out inspecting the creek and have advised that the developers are putting in secondary measures to minimise the risk in future. Meanwhile we are investigating doing our own monitoring, using our new Rosedale Environment Fund

Because of building work on the cabin lawns, we have moved the defib and the rescue ring to the block wall between 13 and 17 Knowlman Road – you can easily access them from the street by leaning over the pool fence. As a bonus they are now in full view of a security camera and protected from the sun. Many thanks to the owners of no. 17 for allowing us to install them here – especially given the rough seas of late.
Our steps are finished! We now have much better access from the viewing platform to beautiful
Nuns Beach, without invading private properties.
Many thanks to Council and those who donated funds to get these long-awaited stairs done –
especially to the generous residents of Tranquil Bay Place.
