Cape to Cape Explorer Tours will be holding a spring working bee this Father’s Day, September 2, from 9.30am till 12.30pm. Staff and volunteers alike will use trimmers and loppers to keep the path open, as well as replace any posts or markers that have been lost over the past season on the Track.

The entire length of the Track is maintained by adoptees of the Friends of the Cape to Cape Track volunteer management group in conjunction with the Department of Environment and Conservation.

Cape to Cape Explorer Tours have adopted the section of Track from Bob’s Hollow to Conto’s Campground and been maintaining it for the past five years.

“It’s always great to get out on the Track at this time of year following the rains, everything is so green and we begin to see all the wildflowers starting to bloom’, says Cape to Cape Explorer Tours’ Senior Guide and resident ecologist Drew McKenzie.

“Regular track maintenance is important, particularly in the spring, as it keeps the path clear of spiky over growth and stray offshoots.”

Anyone interested in volunteering their time to assist on the Track is encouraged to call Cape to Cape Explorer Tours on 0459 452 038 to register. Appropriate meeting places will be given upon registration and participants will need to bring water, enclosed footwear and wet weather gear, just in case we get a few showers. There will be a BBQ lunch provided to celebrate at the end of the session.
