It was a chilly start, but the promise of a fine winter’s day brought 18 bushwalkers out for a leg stretch in Murramarang National Park.

Starting out at Depot Beach we headed uphill to warm up and then followed forestry tracks through some lovely bush.

At Ryans Creek the bridge had gone and we needed to negotiate steep banks, a large fallen tree and thick undergrowth to reach the actual creek, which was easily crossed.

Arriving at Pebbly Beach we saw a male lyre bird in full breeding plumage. Here we had a leisurely lunch allowing for rock pooling or a dip in the sea before heading back to Depot Beach via rock platforms and pebbly beaches, watched suspiciously by a pair of adult white bellied sea eagles.

The Rainforest walk led us back to the car park providing us with a fitting end to lovely walk.
