South Curl Curl boardwalk is a popular spot for walkers. While the ocean vistas are stunning, glance landward and you will also notice the beautiful bushland that clings to the cliffs along the foreshore.

The boardwalk was recently renamed after the late Harry Elliffe, a volunteer who tirelessly tended the vegetation for over 30 years.

So it is fitting that Harry’s legacy lives on, with the Carrington Bushcare Group recently receiving a Highly Commended Award at the Regional Bushcare and Landcare Awards for their work at this location, now known as Harry Elliffe Way.

Russell and Jan Beardmore were there to receive the award on behalf of the entire Bushcare group who continue to dedicate countless hours to improving the site.

A particular thank you also goes to Russell for all his work over the last ten years collecting and propagating local native seeds used in revegetation.
