We are a group of volunteers who formed in 2010 with the aim of conserving the Mundooi Track and the surrounding Coastal bushland. This track, originally established by the local Lions Club, runs parallel to Short Beach north of Merimbula. The word ‘Mundooi’ was suggested by a local elder. It means ‘feet walk‘ in the Dhurga language. We protect the native bushland and restore habitat by removing invasive plants mainly garden escapees such as Polygala species, Western Australian Bluebell Creeper, Agapanthus and Asparagus Fern. We remove weeds and rubbish. We have created interpretive signs along the track describing the flora, fauna and ecology of the area and distributed a brochure about the track to inform visitors and locals. In recent years we have extended our focus to the preservation and regeneration of an endangered plant the Merimbula Star Hair (Astrotricha sp wallagaraugh). This plant is only found along the banks of the Wallagaraugh river south of Eden and in parts of Tura Beach. In Tura Beach it is found along the sides of Sapphire Coast Drive and through parts of the reserves in the area. We are currently working with the BVSC on this project.
