Join Bush Lemons for Blue Mtns Trek for Timor

Hi Lemons,

Bush Lemons will be putting a team into Blue Mountains Trek for Timor in October.  This terrific event raises funds for women’s projects and scholarships for young women for our nearby neighbour, Timor-Leste.

You are invited to join us on Saturday, 22 October in attempting to walk 60-70km in one day.  A few of us will start walking early and try to complete this mammoth task!

You can find out more information via the website and you are also encouraged to donate to the Bush Lemons team: https://trek-for-timor-blue-mountains.raisely.com/

Thanks Lemons, Jocelyn

Floods and landslides

 It has been a terrible time for so many in the hawkesbury and northern rivers.  Although the mountains escaped any floods, the torrential rain has caused numerous landslides which has affected our roads, railway and tracks and has closed certain parts of the National Park. This may affect some of our scheduled walks.

Fair Day 2020


Bush Lemons had a great time at Mardi Gras Fair Day 2020.  We sold lots of caps and buffs and raffle tickets (for Beyond Blue via our Coastrek teams).  It was lovely to see so many Bush Lemons at the stall and catch up with past and present (and future!) Lemons. 

If you would like to buy raffle tickets, please contact Jocelyn at bushscout@bigpond.com or at one of our upcoming walks.  The raffle will be drawn at our garage sale on 14 March 2020.

Bush Lemons in Mardi Gras parade!

36 Lemons participated in the Bush Lemons Mardi Gras parade entry this year.  It was a fantastic way of getting together with our diverse and fantastic community to celebrate our 20 years. And it was fun, fun, fun!!!! 


We had banner carriers, trolley pusher, dancers and walkers, and all wore our new Bush Lemons tshirts.  Because half of Hyde Park is now fenced off for participants, we could sit on the grass and eat food from the stalls whilst we readied our banner and signs.  Although there still weren't enough toilets, it did make for a much more relaxing waiting time.  We just squeezed into our space on the road about half an hour before we were due to start and boogied to all the loud doof-doof around us. 




It really was a wonderful experience to be part of the parade and to feel all the love.  I think showing everyone that lesbians come in all shapes, sizes and ages, and even like bushwalking, is so important.  A big thank you to all the Lemons who helped organise the float and came along and joined in. You are all fabulous!!  Jocelyn
