Callan Park & Fernhill in Greater Sydney Parklands

12 September 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST



Callan Park & Fernhill in Greater Sydney Parklands

Hosted by Friends of Callan Park

For History Week 2021, tune in to hear Diego Bonetto, Mark Fuller and Dr James Broadbent AM discuss the environment and history of these remarkable places.

Diego Bonetto: History of Trees in Callan Park & Broughton Hall. With more tree species than Central Park NY, Callan Park’s trees are the most magnificent in the municipality.

Mark Fuller: Birds of Sydney – An historical perspective. Brightly-coloured Lorikeets, the ‘Bin chickens’ that call Sydney home and the Koel that are now familiar to us all were rarities in Sydney. Sadly many small birds vanished with rampant urban development. Cumberland Plain Woodland remnants in Western Sydney are ‘time capsules’ supporting species once far more widespread.

Dr James Broadbent AM: An Historic Triangle. Three historic buildings in the heart of Mulgoa Valley; The Cottage 1810, St Thomas Church 1838, Fernhill 1845. Together with farmland uniting them, it’s a landscape of exceptional heritage significance.
