With temperatures soaring to above 30 degrees (for Liffey that's hot!) the cool shade of some blackwood trees at Oura Oura Reserve was the place to be on Sunday 28 January. Over 40 supporters joined us for lunch with Bob Brown.

Our supporters came from far and wide across Tasmania, including many with connections to Oura Oura since the 1970s, many of our regular volunteers, and Liffey locals.

Melinda Scott and Ben Lord from the Tasmanian Aboriginal community kicked off the day with a Welcome to Country and overview of local Aboriginal connections to Liffey. Bob Brown and his partner Paul Thomas both talked about how significant Oura Oura is as Bob’s place of inspiration.

Once again Oura Oura worked its magic and the support for our reserves in Tasmania keeps on growing. As a result of our Open Day we've strengthened our supporter base and gained a number of new, highly-skilled volunteers.
