Now in its fourth year The Roma Bush Gardens Walk on the Wild Side and pancake breaky is once again scheduled for Good Friday.  The walk will commence at 7am with breakfast to follow.  To reserve your spot or for further information contact Judith Symmonds on

Attendees at this year’s Walk on the Wild Side on Friday Morning at the Roma Bush Gardens were treated to lemon myrtle pancakes topped with brown sugar and lime juice and a cup of billy tea. 

The delicious breakfast was put on by Roma Bush Garden members, Lynda Hardwick and Eddy Row and followed an informative walk around the dam with BOOBOOK’S own Craig (Principal Ecologist) and Rose (Botanist). 

Children also took away educational worksheets on the Roma Bush Gardens produced by BOOBOOK.

This year walkers saw waterbirds such as Coots, Dusky Moorhens, Glossy Ibis and a Darter drying its wings.  A different suite of birds was present compared to those species that turned up in the very wet conditions of previous years.   

 Excellent fauna and flora guides were available on the day and can be picked up from the Queensland Murray Darling offices in Lewis Street or the BOOBOOK office at 15 Quintin Street.  
 
Now in its third year, the annual Pancake Breakfast is a great way to become more familiar and knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna in the area.
