Hay Bales and Pig Face

Winda Woppa Hawks Nest

Hawks Nest Tea Gardens Bitou Busters have a new sign alerting passers-by that they are working.


The sandwich board – sponsored by local restaurant Benchmark on Booner – was displayed for the first time on Wednesday 17 September by eight BB volunteers working on the dunes near the surf club at Hawks Nest, where a large area of bitou was cut and poisoned within an hour.


It was well disguised amongst stunted wattle, guinea flower and other natives and proved to be harder work than it looked.

Adele and Michael, regularly work on this site, were thrilled to have so much work done in one go. It goes to show that many hands make light work.

The BBs then dug in hay bales and planted pig face on the beach at Winda Woppa, Hawks Nest.

The volunteers enjoyed a well-earned morning tea provided by Isabelle and Steve from Great Lakes Council, who are always a great support to the BBs. Thank you.
