Landcare is a non-governmental community movement dedicated to preventing land degradation and achieving sustainable land management. It consists of a network of local volunteer groups of which there are over 1700 in New South Wales alone. Each group works to find local solutions to local problems such as salinity, soil degradation, animal pests, weeds, vegetation loss, waterside erosion, poor water quality, coastal degradation and urban land degradation. If you appreciate how lucky we are in the Helensburgh district to enjoy a relatively unspoiled bush environment you should also be aware that it is under serious threat. read more

Rise and Shine Community Cleanup 2016

Our annual ‘Rise and Shine’ Clean Up, sponsored by Wollongong City Council, will be taking place on Sunday 20 November, from 1.30 pm. We will be cleaning up the area around Helensburgh Station, down to Wilsons Creek, the access road to the carpark, and the old Railway Station and Tunnel, on the corner of Tunnel Road and Vera Street. This area is a high visability area for all the tourists who come to photograph our World-famous tunnels.
