Friends of Patawalonga Creek

The Friends of Patawalonga Creek (FoPC) is a community group looking after the Patawalonga Creek remnant vegetation site south of West Beach Road, West Beach, which contains the largest stand of Swamp Paperbarks (Melaleuca halmaturorum), left in the metropolitan area.

The site lies on Adelaide Airport land, and we work under the general supervision of the Airport's environment manager, in collaboration with Green Adelaide and other community groups and contractors, including Trees for Life.

FoPC working bees are held on the first Sunday of each month (except January), from 9:30am–noon (meet at site entrance, opposite Atlantic Ave).

Activities include participating in annual Clean Up Australia Day events, National Tree Day planting events, and regular activities such as weeding and maintenance of the walking trail.
