This year’s Easter Sunday walk started at Maloneys Beach and proceeded through Murramarang National Park, via beaches and forest to North Head.
20 walkers enjoyed the warm calm weather, first visiting one of the notable spotted gums in the area, followed by a morning tea break at the ruined concrete sea pool near Judges Beach. Then it was cross country through the burrawangs and eucalypts to North Head Beach and lunch in the shade on the rock platforms. Batemans Bay Bushwalkers have scheduled this walk many times in the past and generally never see another soul on our travels, but at Easter there are holidaymakers on even the most remote beaches, although we had the forest tracks to ourselves.
On the walk back we took a slightly different route through the National Park past a set of abandoned stockyards and via Quiriga Beach. A most relaxing way to spend Easter Sunday.
