Accessible only by boat, the island is open for recreation and studying, and this Sunday they’re having a conservation day planting shrubs and native grasses on the isle.

If you’d like to chip in and help preserve one of the prettiest outdoor galleries in Melbourne bring some planting tools and get-go this Sunday. It’ll be just like that barn-raising scene from Witness.
