Golden Gully

On a great day for walking, thirteen very lucky bushwalkers were out in the hills of Moruya’s State Forest, enjoying each other’s company and pleasant surroundings.

The weekly bulletin had described the walk as “hilly” and our leader, Mary delivered on that. Most hills as usual felt upward, but what goes up most come down, so our knees also got a downhill workout.

The walk also lived up to its name “Golden Gully” with a good stand of golden flowering wattle trees, followed by the gold of some yellow tailed cockatoos and then golden everlasting daisies struggling to flower in the dry conditions.  We were also on the look out for Acacia cognata (Bower Wattle) that had previously been seen there, and this too, we think, was delivered, pending confirmation from the Eurobodalla Botanic Gardens staff.

So, thanks Mary, success all round and we are fitter for it!
