Photos by Bob T and Amanda
Len along with 6 members and 2 visitors (Betty, Bob, Janet, Sharon, Martin, Glen, Amanda, Glenn) drove out along dirt roads and fire trails to start the walk.
We followed an old horse trail, crossed a picturesque creek passing yellow pea flowers, pink flowers listening to the many bird calls (Bob T did name some of the birds) and taking in the smell of the bush. Wonderful.
Around midday we decided to turn around, find our way to Diamond Creek’s number 1 waterfall and head back out. Along the track we came across a Scrub Wren‘s birds nest and further along a goanna hiding against a tree waiting for the right time to scamper up and away.
Finding our way to the waterfall on the way out seemed easier than the walk in. While we could hear the waterfall it wasn’t until got to the bottom we saw the extent, a fabulous waterfall. Water looked very inviting and Martin took the opportunity for a swim. The rest of us took in the scenery that included an abundance of flowering rock orchids, lovely.
Most of us used Len’s trusty rope to assist our descent and climb back out. We followed the creek back to the track and headed up, up to the cars.
Thanks to Len a great day had by all.
