17 keen bushwalkers set out to to do this lovely walk on a sunny Sunday morning. Starting at Burrewarra Point we walked through the amazing banksias and Port Jackson pines, stopping along the way to look at the concrete Nissan Hut used by the Australian Airforce during World War 2. Lots of lovely viewing spots looking north on the way to the Lighthouse and Trig Point, and after rounding the point, more views to the south to Mt Dromedary on the far horizon.
Leaving the coastline behind us, we wandered behind the houses and headed down to the beach. Guerrilla Bay was quite a sight with lots of turbulent water. Added to our adventure was some rock scrambling and a enjoyable stop at Nudies Beach. Nuns Beach was another lovely secluded cove and a great place to see how far we had come around the coastline from the Lighthouse.
Some more rock scrambling as we passed by Jimmys Island on the way to Rosedale Beach. Leaving Rosedale at the southern end of the beach we headed up the steps to get a closer look at the Nuns Retreat. There are some lovely properties in this area including our very own Fiona Lodge (a retreat for people suffering terminal illness and their families). Back down onto the beach for our lunch stop . One last wander through the bush enjoying this beautiful coast and retracing our steps that will lead us back to Guerilla Bay.
Thank you to you all for coming – it was great to meet some people we hadn’t met before and to catch up with those that we hadn’t seen for awhile. Thanks also to Karen for your guidance and support. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
