Mary and Stan’s 15 km Burrill Ramble showcased another gem on our doorstep.
We enjoyed the Giriwa (means goanna) walking track, with views of lake and forest. Following the foreshore, signage informed us of the Dhurga speaking Murramarang and Budawang people culture, the traditional custodians of Burrill Lake. We also had our first distant glimpse of Pigeon House mountain.
Our next track took us to the Burrill Lake rock shelter or bimbala meaning cockle shell, nestled in rainforest. This is truly amazing. In the 60’s archaeologists used carbon dating to confirm aboriginal occupation going back at least 20,000 years.
We finish the day walking over the rock platforms, keeping our feet dry, through bush to the cars.
Bush, lake, rainforest, rock shelter, beach, rock platforms, history and a perfect day.
Thanks Mary and Stan
