Things to do at Glenthorne:
This past week a Wedgetail Eagle was seen low over Glenthorne. Come an see what other magnificent wildlife is there.
Come to the Majors Road gates just before 10.00am, for an early start, or at 12 noon for the Picnic. If you are intending to come along a little later, the gates will be unlocked. Please make sure that you close and bolt the gate behind you once you have entered.
Parking is available across Majors Road in the IQRA College carpark. Please be careful crossing Majors Road. Walk down the road into the property (heading south) until you reach the large pine tree near the Old Barn. (Parking for disabled or elderly is available by turning right at the large pine tree and following the road to behind the old CSIRO buildings). All other visitors are asked to park in the IQRA College car park and walk in. Once you are at the large pine tree, follow the road through the gate, along the dirt track, to where you will see our gazebos.
Please always leave gates as you find them, as sheep may be grazing and the gate is opened / closed as required to control the sheep.
If you park on the bitumen, behind the CSIRO buildings, you will need to walk back down the track to where we will be enjoying ourselves. If you are unable to walk 500m along the dirt track, you can drive carefully to where we will be having the picnic.
Visitors are always welcome, and we are happy to show people around our revegetation sites and the heritage structures.
Please call Alan on 0411 595 910 if you have any difficulties but there will be volunteers at the gate around 10 am.
If you are coming along, please respect the property and its wildlife and we hope you enjoy your visit.
