    Wow, these photos suggest that Beauty Gully has hidden treasures and needs some TLC and work. I’d be happy to help over the bext few months if there is a working group.

    Hi to all,

    Interesting photos, great website. Love the interactive ability. Beauty Gully looks like a great project - a mix of high quality streamside and degraded parts ready for restoration
