Street Address: cnr Underwood St and Tarrawanna Rd
Town: Corrimal
Meeting times: Every Friday (8-10 in summer; 9-11 in winter) Corner of Tarrawanna Road and Underwood Street, Corrimal Corrimal Creek South, runs into Towradgi Creek

This site does not have any original native plants. It was owned by the Corrimal mine and had a railway running through it. In the 70’s the line was removed and all the land sold for houses except for this small reserve, which was granted to Council with the proviso that it would never be built on.  It is a grassed area with a creek running through it. Council mows the grass of the reserve, and Bushcare began in 2011 and takes place along the top of the creek and down the banks.

However, due to obvious reconstruction and/or land fill, the original creek was altered to more of a stormwater channel with steep banks on either side, and much of the soil is riddled with small gravel and railway ballast and is in poor condition. There are a few established trees on site: a gum and acacia in the SE corner, two gums in the reserve on the western side.

Most of the northern side of the creek is private land. Work has been concentrated on the southern bank so far.
