Our unofficial September run will be to the Wollongong Botanic Gardens which are situated on Murphy’s Ave. in Wollongong. The gardens cover approximately 25 acres and consist of a large variety of plants & trees. Due to it being spring there should be a good show of flowers & flowering shrubs.
There is a parking area off Murphy’s Ave and just inside the gate there is a coffee van selling food as well as coffee. You can bring your own tea, coffee & morning tea if you wish. There are also picnic tables a little further into the garden where we will have morning tea. I would also suggest that you bring a picnic blanket or chair just in case all or some of the tables are occupied.
We can also visit the outside of Gleniffer Brae the former home of Mr. Arthur Sidney Hoskins who with his father Charles & brother Cecil (later Sir Cecil) Hoskins established the Port Kembla Steel Works in 1928. Unfortunately, we can only look at the outside of this Tudor residence as it is not possible to see the inside as it is part of the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music.
Meeting time: 10:00 am rendezvous at the garden parking area Murphy’s Avenue Gwynneville
