Share the goodness

Standing on a rocky outcrop with a sea of wildflowers before you, it’s hard to imagine you’re just minutes from the Geraldton city centre.

But in the Chapman River Regional Park, with frogs calling from the river below and birds from the trees above, you can enjoy one of the best-kept secrets in the NACC NRM region.

And during this week’s Goodness Festival, NACC, Chapman River Friends and the local community celebrated by doing just that with a free wildlife walk!

The guided walk was a huge success, with young and old putting on their exploring shoes for an interesting and informative walk along the Chapman River Wildlife Corridor.

Wildflowers were in bloom and orchids were on show during the walk, which was capped-off by a delicious bushfood banquet and an opportunity to get “up-close and personal” with some creepy and cuddly native animals from the Greenough Wildlife Park.

The Chapman River Wildlife Corridor extends over more than 300 hectares of remnant native vegetation and contains about 300 species of native plants, more than 123 recorded species of birds, and the many reptiles and frogs. Some of our most iconic native species – such as echidnas and kangaroos – also call the park their home.
