Upper King Parrot Creek Road scenic drive

UKPC

 

UKPC1For over a decade the Strath Creek Landcare Group have been working with landholders to fence off and revegetate the King Parrot Creek. Although not complete the results of their extensive efforts can be seen from several vantage points along the Upper King Parrot Creek Road. The creekline can also be viewed from the Broadford-Flowerdale Road.

In winter the creek looks like a ribbon of dark green meandering through the King Parrot Creek valley (see the header photo above). In spring it’s a river of gold as the Silver Wattles (Acacia dealbata) start to flower.

Upper King Parrot Creek Road has now been declared a road of high environmental value under the Ribbons of Remnants Roadsides Project, Stage 2, by the Murrindindi Shire and Upper Goulburn Landcare Network. Plantings of local groundflora species are continuing with the assistance of the Strath Creek Landcare Group.
