Recent visitors to the land at Moonambel will have been welcomed by a blast of yellow, and no, it is not canola.
In recent years, during late winter and spring the revegetated parts of the hill have come alive with a variety of blooming wattles and hakeas which form part of the newly developing bush understory. These plants have the added benefit of attracting many species of birds and insects.
Some of the species we have planted include Spreading wattle (Acacia genistifolia), Gold-dust wattle (Acacia acinacea), Australian golden wattle (Acacia pycnantha), Hedge wattle (Acacia paradoxa) and of course the ubiquitous Sydney wattles which unfortunately are not long for this world, oops! The Hakea (Hakea decurrens) which we have planted is seeding really well. This is often called Bushy needlewood .
