There are many beautiful foreshore and bushland walks in Mosman. Download maps and brochures here, or pick one up at Mosman Library.

Victorian Bushfire Appeal 2009

The 2009 Victorian Bushfire Fund to assist individuals and communities affected by devastating bushfires in Victoria has been launched by the Premier John Brumby in partnership with Red Cross and the Federal Government.

An independent panel made up of community leaders will oversee the appeal Fund’s operation.

Donations are continuing to flow in via the website and phone, and there has also been an overwhelmingly generous response from corporate Australia.

Donations can be made using our secure online donations form or by phoning 1800 811 700.
