Chapman River Friends are a dedicated group of volunteers who during the months of June and July host free guided walks through the Chapman River Regional Park. Participants have to opportunity to learn more about the parks incredible plants, how to identify animal tracks, spot brilliant birds and enjoy spectacular views.
The Chapman River Regional Park boasts over 300 hectares of remnant native vegetation and is home to over 300 species of native plants, several endemic to the area. Along with the 123 plus recorded species of bird (both migratory and resident), reptiles, frogs, echidnas and kangaroos make the park their home.
The park is a nature lovers paradise, where walkers and mountain bike riders have a choice of trails, traversing along the estuarine salt marsh where pelicans, osprey and wading birds rest and feed, to along limestone cliff tops or through cool groves of river she-oak.
