Friends of Clontarf Hill and the Adjacent Bushland Inc
Clontarf Hill bushland reserve and significant adjacent bushland play an important role in landscape scale ecosystem connectivity and resilience and provide a focus for the community to take action and protect biodiversity.
The vision for Friends of Clontarf Hill and Adjacent Bushland is to retain and rehabilitate Clontarf Hill and the adjacent bushland corridor as a unique park that will form an integral part of the local and regional open space system.
Clontarf Hill and the surrounding bushland is an important area because of the remnant Tuart trees and bushland located upon a limestone formation that has not been heavily impacted upon. It provides a habitat for native flora and fauna and, together with the adjacent bushland on the southern side of Healy Rd, creates a green corridor. It is also an Indigenous heritage site that has historic value.
Friends of Clontarf Hill (FOCH) is a community organisation that has been functioning since 1992. Our aims are to:
- gather and publicise information about the area,
- coordinate interested members of the community who wish to participate in activities that support our aims
- provide resources to preserve and protect Clontarf Hill and the surrounding bushland areas for conservation and recreation purposes, and
- re-vegetate, weed and clean up the area.
Large numbers of people from Hamilton Hill, Spearwood, Coogee, Fremantle, South Fremantle, Hilton, White Gum Valley and Beaconsfield.
