Nov 2022 – Percival Hill

On a warm November morning we walked up the gently sloping western side of Percival Hill at Nicholls. We passed through native grassland, woodland with some very old eucalypts and also open forest. At the top there were expansive 360 degree views. Indigenous axe-grinding stones had been documented, and though we searched the outcropping sandstone we couldn’t definitively locate any. We did see Imperial Jezabel butterflies on the wing, a small dragon, mating beetles and many flowering species in the grassland. There were fields of daisies, and we found a flowering lily. Leptospermums were also in flower.
