On our October Nature Ramble, we visited a 20 hectare remnant of the Anglesea Heath bounded by Anglesea River, Coalmine Road, Golf Club land and Alcoa freehold land to the south, which adjoins Fraser Ave.
The wildflowers were quite prolific. The highlights were Salmon Sun Orchid, Heath Milkwort, Victorian Smoke Bush and Needle Bog Rush.
