Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub (ESBS) is a nationally and state-listed Endangered Ecological scrub and heath vegetation community confined to deep, wind formed sand deposits in the coastal suburbs of Sydney.

It originally covered over 5,300 hectares, however today there is less than 145 hectares (a loss of over 97%). Centennial Parklands is home to two sites of Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub (ESBS) - in the Bird Sanctuary and at York Road West

Every year Centennial Parklands Foundation assists in the conservation and restoration of the ESBS by funding bush regeneration work.

Environmental weeds are one of the biggest threats to our biodiversity in remnant bushland. Through vital bush regeneration work we are protecting a valuable and irreplaceable asset to the Parklands. ESBS bush remnants are important areas to be protected within Centennial Parklands, and through our work we have seen an increase in new native species found at these sites.

Centennial Parklands Foundation and Centennial Parklands are collaborating with Moriah College and Waverley Council to extend the management of this endangered ESBS community.


We need your support to ensure the Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub continues to be protected and regenerated.
