Walk leader, Mary was more than a bit stunned when 30 BBBW’s turned out for an easy Sunday morning stroll through the Illawong Nature reserve. Many members had no idea that this sanctuary was hidden behind the trees that line busy George Bass Drive or that it is also an event venue, dotted with secluded cabins and even an iconic caravan that looks some what like a spaceship that has just landed.

Tall trees gave way to lower grassy land before the group wheeled around to go back into the forest. There, another surprise awaited walkers– tucked in between the trees was a Tesla recharge station. The 30 walkers were momentarily silent as they absorbed this unlikely information. Well, you never know what you will find in the bush!

Thank you Mary for such an enjoyable Sunday morning.
