Illawarra Grevillea Park, Bulli
The Illawarra Grevillea Park was commenced in 1987 and opened in 1993 with the aim of housing the Grevillea Study Group's plant collection and providing Information about Australian native plants and how to use them in the home garden,. It has been maintained by a group of dedicated volunteers who meet at the park every Monday morning at 9am. The Park is open to the public on six weekends per year in Autumn, Winter and Spring to highlight the the varied flowering times of different species. Open day information will be published on this page and also on our webpage www.grevilleapark.org as well as local advertising in local media in the leadup to the open days.Put Illawarra Grevillea Park and other Wollongong attractions into our Wollongong online travel route planner , and watch your holiday take shape.
The enclosed area of the park contains display garden beds, walking tracks, the historic chapel, a bbq and picnic area and toilet facilities. Rare and unusual plants are available at the plant sales including species grevilleas and grafted plants.
If you walk out beyond the back gate there is a rainforest walk which takes you across a creek and through woodland containing large numbers of red cedars, ferns, palms and other rainforest species. Extensive bush regeneration work has been carried out in this area to reclaim from the lantana which choked it 20 years ago. This area outside the back gate is open to the public all year round.
It would be nice to have the park open more often but at present volunteer numbers are limited and it is not possible to open more regularly. One of the aims of this Facebook page is to show the public what is flowering throughout the year as there is something different every week and there are so many beautiful plants that the public don't get to see. If you visit the park let us know what you think and if you have any suggestions again let us know.
