Join us as we remove weeds from beautiful Cascade Gardens – a natural gem right in the heart of Hobart.

Cascade Gardens has the iconic South Hobart Rivulet (home to the famous rivulet platypus) wrapping around it and flows through to the Derwent River. The gardens and the surrounding bushland and peri-urban areas containing walking tracks is a popular place to escape the traffic and noise of the city. Within the park, there are maintained English style gardens, as well as native bush land.

Unfortunately, due to its close proximity to urban residences, some of the native bush land areas have a problem with escaped garden weeds, such as English Broom. This project will help bring back native diversity by removing Broom and other weeds, allowing native understorey plants to regenerate.
