The group is made up of Port Stephens Council volunteers whose current goal is making the entranceways to Anna Bay more visually appealing.

Carl Boardman of the Anna Bay and Birubi Hall Community Landcare Group told News Of The Area, “We are working on planting out natives into a garden which will create an entrance to Anna Bay.”

He believes creating better streetscapes will improve Anna Bay’s desirability.

“The garden has been made possible through a Port Stephens Council community grant of $2000,” he said.

Port Stephens Councillor Sarah Smith told News Of The Area, “I live here, and a big part of why I joined Council was to see local projects for local people being carried out.”

The Anna Bay and Birubi Hall Community Landcare Group members have planted the area with what they believe are the last of the plants from the Ngioka Centre at Little Beach.

Peter Davis is the Chair of the group and he shared his vision for the future.

“I’d like to see all entries to Anna Bay being planted and cared for as a joint project between Council and local volunteers,” he said.
