NPA's Far South Coast Branch operates in an area with magnificent National Parks to explore and that is the main focus of our activities.
Walks are held every second month and are generally of easy to medium grade. The walks are well attended and are easy going affairs! We try to accommodate all ages and abilities in our planning.
Overnight field trips are organised from time to time and have included stays at places like Green Cape Lighthouse and Yarrangobilly Caves. These excursions generally fill quite quickly.
The branch's last AGM was held on Saturday, 12 April 2016.
Great Southern Forest CampaignThe Great Southern Forest (GSF) campaign, spearheaded by NPA's Far South Coast Branch, aims to ensure the future of the koala and other forest dwellers by reconnecting and protected the forests of south east NSW. The new approach to forest management involves ending native forest logging, planning a transition away from the loss-making woodchipping sector, and using carbon funding to create regional jobs in tourism, wildlife protection and forest management.
