The Friends of Franke Scrub, Highfields, are holding an Open Day on Sunday, to celebrate the installation of new signage.
Native plants to the local area will be on sale – It will be the opportunity for environmentally-minded locals to replace some of those plants (which have been cleared over the last century and a half) from the land which has since become their gardens.
The Open day will also offer a “walk and talk” around the trail with members of the Friends of Franke Scrub, who can answer your questions about this special and rare remnant of Highfields’ original vegetation.
To find Franke Scrub, from Toowoomba:
Head north along Ruthven Street (New England Highway).
6k from Toowoomba’s last traffic lights, you come to Highfields’ first set.
Turn left into Cawdor Road, then after 1.6k turn left into Cawdor Drive.
After another 2.2k turn right into Franke Road.
Franke scrub is 1k along, at the end of a section of dirt road (suit 2wd).
