Our March-June 2021 walks series were made possible with the assistance of funding from the Business Relief & Rebuild Fund, provided by the Singleton Council Community Support Package and the BHP Vital Resources Fund. This funding assisted local businesses after the impacts of the 2019/20 bushfires and the impacts of COVID-19. Callicoma Hill acknowledges the Wonaruah/Wonnarua people, traditional owners of the lands.
