Berowra Veterans

A burned out stump gives an orchid a place to live

In our Berowra area we have wonderful gum trees which have endured the scars of bushfires but have tenaciously lived on, regenerated and flourished.

A stump bursts into life after fire

They have continued to serve their plant, insect, bird, animal and human community for many years.

A stump flourishes after fire

These powerful witnesses stand in the Berowra Valley Regional Park today.

Our Berowra Living History interviewees include a number of valiant local women, men and families who bear the scars of war.  They teach us the significance of strong lives of service in times of conflict and of peace.
