Activate Tree Planting is thrilled to invite you to our first Tree Planting Festival at Katter Kich (also known as Wave Rock), on Ballardong Noongar Boodja.

The perfect opportunity for a weekend getaway to enjoy a full THREE DAYS of community, dancing, workshops, connection, games, relaxing, live music, camping and of course planting 50,000 native seedlings! โ›บ๏ธ ๐ŸŒ  ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿช˜

Thanks to the ongoing support of Trillion Trees we are excited to start the restoration process for the surrounds of Wave Rock and bring it back to it's former beauty.ย 

Sheenagh Collins is a landowner located in Hyden, working to repair a degraded section of land on her property. Significant past clearing of much of Western Australiaโ€™s native bushland has caused serious environmental issues including salinity, soil erosion and the loss of native fauna habitat.ย The lake and river system near Wave Rock including lake Magic, had fresh water adn an abundance of life, but unfortunately now because of clear felling it all turned very salty, which further declined theย ecosystem. To plant 50 000 salt tolerant-trees and bushes will contribute toย reduce the salinty levels and create a better environment for more species to thrive once again.ย This partnership will assist Sheenagh to continue her goal of restoring this degraded area to a biodiverse Eucalypt woodland.


Katter Kich is a true WA icon. Spanning a massive 110 meters long, this natureโ€™s wonder is thought to be 2,700 million years old. It is the north face of a larger rocky hill known as Hyden Rock.

Katter Kich has strong cultural connections for the Noongar people who used this extraordinary place as a meeting place. About 20 minutes drive north of Hyden is Mulkaโ€™s Cave in The Humps Nature Reserve, which has a wealth of Aboriginal rock art with over 450 individual items from hand stencils to paintings and motifs.

We will be planting a few kilometres away from Katter Kich, around Lake Magic, which is a naturally occurring salt lake with gypsum minerals at its base and a sandy, circular beach surrounding it. The water is clear, but very very salty, you'll float!

Over the weekend, youโ€™ll have the privilege to see the changing colours over this incredible landscape, wake early to see the sunrise at the lake, and experience the sunset over the rock.
