What is the aim?
Mullet Creek falls from the Ingleside escarpment to the Warriewood wetlands and into the Narrabeen Lagoon. This steep narrow valley is home to many vulnerable and significant fauna species, including the Heath Monitor, Grey- Headed Flying Fox, Sugar Glider and Brown Antechinus.
Of particular concern is the protection of habitat for the endangered Giant Burrowing Frog and the Red-Crowned Toadlet. The Foundation is starting the fifth year of a 6 year project to reduce the weed invasion along the creekline and restore native habitat. The valley remains a twitchers haven with over 170 bird species sighted in this area.
Who Funds it?
This long- term project has been made possible by a $250,000 grant from the NSW Environmental Trust for the protection and conservation of Mullet Creek. Community Involvement in the project is crucial to its success.
Can I help?
The Mullet Creek bushcare group meets on the third Saturday afternoon of each month.

Giant Burrowing Frogs
In the last year Giant Burrowing Frogs have been found in the upper catchment area. Vulnerable to extinction in NSW, these frogs need water of excellent quality and enjoy calling from yabby burrows. Hear its call here
Mullet Creek Bushcare Group
The Mullet Creek Bushcare group weeds and plants tubestock (small trees and shrubs) in this area.
Community Planting Days
On Community planting days we have planted tubestock to help the forest regenerate in areas fenced off from hungry Swamp Wallabies.
