Spring is here!

Wildflowers to usher in spring! This is the view of the Newcastle Campus library building from the sports field, currently carpeted in drifts of beautiful flowers. I thought this should definitely be captured before mowing time!

Fernleigh Track

The final section of the Fernleigh Track from Redhead to Belmont is complete and finishes right at the door of the Belmont Campus Library Building. The track now takes you through many types of terrain including boardwalks over marshlands.

This is a long ride from Adamstown but you will be well rewarded at the end! The campus grounds are becoming a favourite resting spot for cyclists, with shady natives, seating areas and a new garden and gazebo structure creatd by our landscaping students.
