Highfields Falls -15/3/06

Toowoomba City Council's various bushland parks are a haven for many species of birds. These parks include Redwood, Jubilee, Nielsen, Duggan, Glen Lomond and Echo Valley South along the escarpment which members regularly visit. The TCC and the wider community need to be made fully aware of the significant biodiversity - and not just birds- within these parks so that they are managed appropriately. Please make your visits count by posting your observations here ...
