North Head Sanctuary Foundation website
After six years
of submission writing, meetings and workshops, the Sanctuary opened
for visitors in 2007. We opened our first interpretive centre
at the beginning of 2009 and moved this to its current location
This interpretive centre
in Building 20, featuring information about
North Head's heritage, plants, animals
and research related to the Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub threatened
community, is open from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Our Information Centre re-opened on Saturday 6th March 2021,
with hours being 10am to 4pm
on Saturdays and Sundays.
However, due to the emergence of
new COVID-19 cases across NSW, Sydney Harbour Federation Trust has
cancelled all tours running this weekend (25-27 June) and suspended
the volunteer program until 30 June.
The Information Centre in
Building 20 will also be closed this weekend
and for the next
two weeks whilst Sydney is in Lockdown.
we re-open, come in and visit us in Building 20 - Education Centre.
Early in 2009
we established a Native Plant Nursery within the former School of
Artillery site and have been planting out seedlings into degraded
areas. It's fun! Would you like to become involved
once covid-19 restrictions ease?
