Bell Frog Mosaic



Designed and made by: students of Bayside Secondary College, Millers Road, Altona.

Frog Facts:The Southern Bell Frog (Litoria raniformis) can change from green to brown in 10 minutes, depending on environmental conditions.

Surrounding Species: Red Gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis), She-Oak (Allocasuarinsa verticillata), Tussock Grass (Poa labillardierii).


 

Point of Interest: The Ampitheatre is not a natural feature but the shape of the former bluestone quarry. On wet days there is a waterfall over the side of the cliff. The park’s designer laid pipes to collect storm water from the western edge of the park to form this feature. In the centre of the Amphitheatre, partially hidden by vegetation, you’ll see a metal box. This is the bore that draws up water from 120 metres underground to supply the Lakes and keep them topped up. When you cross the stepping-stones, look for metal poles on either side. The Ranger uses these as a gauge to turn the bore on or off overnight.
