The spectacular scenery on Saturday’s bushwalk was proof enough to all 19 bushwalkers of why they chose to live where they live! The walk started under a clear blue sky at Mackenzies Beach, and we were soon heading on our way to Pretty Point. A couple of walkers glimpsed a whale out at sea on their walk out to the point, but alas it was not visible during our morning tea break out on this very rocky point. However it was obvious that the day’s slight breeze and relatively calm sea had enticed quite a few fisherman out in their boats to try their luck.
From Pretty Point it was a series of up, over, then down many of the headlands on our way north. Though much of the track is clearly marked, there were enough rough challenging descents to keep us focused on where we put our feet!
Looking down into the water from the higher points on the track, it was obvious that there are plenty of good snorkelling spots along this coast. Lunch was spent on Lilli Pilli Beach, before once again heading north across another headland to the cars at Circuit Beach.
