TRIP TO ANL SITE, FOREST REEFS AND MILLTHORPE
10th of September trip. Not wonderful weather and wet under foot but still a very interesting and enjoyable day. First stop was the ANL Site at Browns Creek. Rob from ANL gave us a very informative talk about their operation. Then it was on to Forest Reefs to visit a lovely garden. At one stage though we all thought we might have to push the bus. After a lunch break in Millthorpe it was off to Millthorpe Nursery. It is a lovely nursery and private garden. The bus was a bit heavier on the way home with all our purchases.
