Welcome… Meet the Friends of Brisbane Ranges and learn about what we do.

Friends of Brisbane Ranges aims to learn about the environment, ecology, flora, fauna, and history of the Brisbane Ranges National Park and Steiglitz Historic Park.

Group members meet regularly to learn more about the diverse ecology of the Park through citizen science activities and hands-on conservation work. And for members, this is an enjoyable and involving way to appreciate the natural beauty of the park while protecting the Park’s environmental values.

In 2022, the Friends of Brisbane Ranges will celebrate its 40 year anniversary. We look forward to providing news and events on this new website to recognise this important milestone.

You will see the material for this website changing as it is being uploaded and posted, so if you can't find specific Friends of Brisbane Ranges subjects or stories, please let us know.

We hope you enjoy this newly launched website and learn a bit more about the unique assemblage of animals, fungi and plants calling the Brisbane Ranges home. To get involved, keep up with social media, join in an activity and become a member too.

We hope to see you soon.

We acknowledge that we are working on the land of the Wathaurong/Wada Wurrung people, and pay our respects to their elders past, present and future. We also pay our respects to all Aboriginal people currently living on this Country.

Friends of Brisbane Ranges
We went on a walk around the Ted Errey Nature Circuit today. We stopped at Nelsons Lookout for lunch. Unfortunately our view was marred by numerous bits of mandarin peel and a couple of napkins that some inconsiderate and lazy walker had deliberately dropped there. Citrus peel does not break down very rapidly, especially in a dry rocky place like the lookout. If you can cart the stuff in, you should be able to carry the waste out!!!! I managed to cart mine and theirs out.Image attachment

It’s probably unlikely, but would add that I always dry out my peels and they make excellent fire lighters!!

Next activity.

 Alternative activity for those who dont wish to tackle the walk  is to meet with Peter Sharp and tackle some of the weeds in Sutherlands Creek in Steiglitz township
