Diary Dates

Visit to Leela's 'toy' farm in Dorrigo

Saturday December 19th, 11:00am-2:00pm

A few things to consider for those who are attending:
At 9 am this morning Dorrigo Mountain had received approximately 620mm of rain in the previous 6 days.
It will be soggy.
Park on the edge of Walnut drive or Tamarind Avenue. Please do not park on anyone's grass. Even a light car will leave ruts, due to the soft ground and Leela wants to stay on good terms with her neighbours.
If you don't mind walking, please park further away to make it easier for those who can't walk as far.
Please bring sensible footwear and either an umbrella or wet weather clothing, as it is expected that there will  be some more rain on Saturday.
Check that the road is open, before travelling to Dorrigo. According to : The Waterfall Way is currently open between Bellingen and Dorrigo, but has hazards.

From Leela:

It's been 2 years since I've had you lot up for a visit. My how the garden has grown! Landscaping and new projects started (finishing is the hard part!), plus more naughty animals to marshal. I'm still trying to push the boundaries of climatic possibilities - gardens & life; the grand experiment.
Come on up the mountain and see what I've been busy with...
Numbers of course will have to be limited, so RSVP to grab a place, then details and directions will be given to successful respondents. Please keep in mind the concerns of current times for the good of all.


Coming? RSVP to obtain the address and so we know who’s attending, even if you already know how to get there.

If you RSVP for this event, an email (containing directions) will be sent to the email address you provide on the RSVP form. If you do not receive an email, please check your junk mail folder.

Organiser: Leela O'Callaghan or phone 0417 536 490
