Orchids on North Head
 

Welcome to the
North Head Sanctuary Foundation website

After six years of submission writing, meetings and workshops, the Sanctuary opened for visitors in 2007.  We opened our first interpretive centre at the beginning of 2009 and moved this to its current location in 2011.

Early in 2009 we established a Native Plant Nursery within the former School of Artillery site and have been planting out seedlings into degraded areas. It's fun! Would you like to become involved?

We have also set up an interpretive centre featuring information about plants and research related to the Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub threatened community. Come in and visit us.
