What's in flower shows all plants known in Tumbi Wetlands, and when possible photos are also displayed.
The link What's in flower this month? takes you to the monthly pages.

Variety and Structure takes a different look at the wetlands, listing the plants by their habit, e.g. herb, shrub, lily, grass.
It also attempts to describe the nature of the Melaleuca Sedge Forest and the Alluvial Floodplain Shrub Swamp Forest that make up this area.

Aboriginal use of plants reports on the recent visit to our site by Aboriginal traditional person, Gavi Duncan. He walked through the wetland reserve with us to see and talk about the plants his people might have used.
Wetlands news and HistoryThis page traces a history of Tumbi Wetlands Bushcare, including fires and reports recent changes.

The location of Tumbi Wetland Bushcare and the meeting times are shown here along with a description of the work done by Bushcare volunteers

Plant Identification page gives some tips on how to recognise plants with the help of the Sydney Botanic Gardens Herbarium and also shows some plants recently identified there.

Hidden away in this website is
a tutorial page enabling you with a little skill to produce a site like this one, for your landcare project.
Biodiversity looks at some research conducted in cooperation with the Australian Museum, aimed at putting tools for biodiversity measurement into the hands of volunteers.
1. Human Intervention looks at how we humans can upset or help the balance that exists in the natural world.
2. The Web of Life page presents a view of how all creatures are interdependent.
3. This page shows examples of interdependence.
4. A page about fungi and their role in biodiversity, together with some examples from Tumbi Wetlands.
5. Now a page about the variety of animals at Tumbi Wetlands fills out the story.
