Volunteer activities suspended

The Victorian Government has announced a number of changes to restrictions for Melbourne and regional Victoria.

All volunteering activities on Parks Victoria managed land including Wilsons Promontory National Park have been suspended until further notice.

Friends of the Prom has postponed its planned volunteer activities at the Prom.   We will keep you updated as more information becomes available. 

National Tree Day

Friends of the Prom was able to complete a tree-planting activity for National Tree Day just before the latest restrictions were announced and volunteering activities were suspended.

Covid-19 restrictions meant that Friends of the Prom had to scale down its tree-planting activity at Tidal River on National Tree Day. Normally our event would be open to the public and include a free BBQ lunch courtesy of parks Victoria. This year, we recognised the occasion on Saturday 1st August with a modest tree-planting activity involving nine local volunteers.

It was a beautiful winter’s day at the Prom and the volunteers planted 425 seedlings around 34th Avenue – Prickly Moses, Sweet Bursaria, White Correas and Sea Box. A great effort towards revegetating the Tidal River campground.

A big thank you to volunteers (l to r) Bruce, Robin, Thomas, Karin, Helen, Yianni and Anda (and Olga and Linda - out of frame) for helping to revegetate the Prom.
