    Lights on the Lake Community Festival – Sunday 3 December 2023

    Once again the 2023 Lights on the Lake Community Festival was a huge success. The event was held on 3 December 2023 in Crummunda park, Coongarra Esp, Wurtulla on the banks of our beautiful Lake Currimundi. The weather smiled on us. The crowds flocked to the park and seemed to have a wonderful time. A variety of entertainers performed for us. Almost 400 children worked on arts and crafts projects, visited the Council Discovery van, Turtlecare and Sea Life exhibits. People tried their hand on African drums in the drumming circle.

    Leacys Bushland Reserve

    Have you taken a walk through Leacy’s Bushland Reserve, Currimundi? Do you even know where it is? Leacys Bushland Reserve is one of the last secluded bushland retreats in an urbanized area where walkers can appreciate how the land used to be full of tall timbers, shaded woods, hidden wildflowers and wildlife. Even Google doesn't know much about it!

    Drip! Drip! Drip!

    Have you ever wondered, lying in bed on a still night, where that dripping sound outside is coming from? Even when it hasn’t rained? Does the relentless ‘tock’, ‘tock’, ‘tock’ sound of water dripping onto a plastic bucket keep you awake wondering? Well, there’s no need to check your guttering. The culprit is probably a male Striped Marsh Frog (Limnodynastes peroni). This frog is very common. Its habitat stretches from northern Queensland to Tasmania. It’s very adaptable and often found in urban environments. From personal experience, I can vouch that includes Currimundi and more specifically, our back yard. Click on the audio-player arrow to hear the frog’s call.    …
