Aerial baiting is scheduled for 7th Oct 2023 to 15th Oct 2023NSW : National Parks and Wildlife Service

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an aerial baiting program in Popran and Brisbane Water National Parks.

The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.

The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise the impact of wild dogs on neighbouring stock.

Signs will be placed at the entry to the baiting location

Domestic pets are not permitted in NPWS National Parks managed lands. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.

“From Little Things Big Things Grow”

Monthly Community Breakfast BBQs

From little things big things grow…

What started as a simple concept of bringing people together & trying to build a stronger sense of community has quickly turned into a ‘not to be missed’ event which is raising much needed funds for the renovation of the Pearl Beach Memorial Community Hall. 

The monthly community BBQ & markets has grown from a casual bacon and egg roll on a Sunday morning to a ‘one stop shop’ providing locals and visitors with a range of fresh & locally made produce – all within walking distance. 

The BBQ & markets held every second Sunday morning (8-11am) is a great spot for people to catch up with friends, meet new people or a chance for visitors to enjoy some local hospitality. Tables & chairs are set up on the back deck & garden area so that friends, young families and dog owners can sit and enjoy a relaxed breakfast/brunch. 

The small ‘market’ also boasts a number of stalls including pastries & bread from Burnt Honey Bakery; fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs and honey from Mountain Pride Farm; Mediterranean Foods from Jesus ate Falafel and Vietnamese takeaway from Ivy Do. 

To further add to the community vibe, a group of local volunteers have started creating amazing jams, pickles and chutneys made from local (often donated) produce and made in the Community Hall kitchen. These have proven hugely popular and fly out the door every month. 

Thank you to the community for embracing and supporting this initiative and to the ever growing band of volunteers that make it happen. 

The BBQ is held the second Sunday of the month and everyone is welcome.
