Mid-Winter Bonfire Saturday June 30th 5.00 - 7pm

At the Fern Tree Community Centre

Sausage sizzle ($2), bonfire and free sparklers (no fireworks)

Our local fire brigade will be there.

Make or bring a lantern and join in a Lantern Parade, with small prizes for the best lanterns! Some lantern-making materials provided.

Hot soup, Gluhvein, hot drinks, cosy smiles all round!

Please don’t park in the Tavern carpark, especially not on this night (unless you’re a customer.) The Tavern has a big event on the evening of Saturday 30 June. Please car-pool and park somewhere else, or come on foot. Thank you.

See you there!

(**Find plenty of ideas about how to make a tea-light lantern on the internet – or try this simple, safe one made from a plastic milk bottle – check out the 4-minute tutorial at https://open.abc.net.au/explore/3254 )

Fern Tree Bushcare Weed Booklet

Fern Tree Bushcare Group have published a new edition of the Fern Tree Weed Booklet which you can download here, or if you would like a hard copy email bushcare@ferntree.tas.au and we will deliver one. There are 10 additional weeds added to the booklet, making 30 in all that we really don't want to see getting a hold in Fern Tree or on kunanyi/Mt Wellington.

Community Garden


A Community Garden is just starting up, on private land in a sunny, convenient part of Fern Tree. A local family has generously offered some of their front yard for the community to share. If you would like to be involved in a friendly communal garden, please send a message to secretary@ferntree.tas.au and we can put you in contact with the neighbours involved. At this point the garden is very much in the formative stages.
