On Wednesday 30th a happy band of BBBWalkers  explored a section of Mogo State  Forest.  Ably led by Rob, we bush bashed (gently) for one and half kilometres, crossed creek beds, climbed interesting rock formations and  “rediscovered ” a line of Callistemon rigida (Rigid bottlebrush) rarely found in these parts.  Following bike tracks and forestry roads we investigated what remains of many old mines and  imagined lives long past.  It was lovely to see so many plants in flower. The Banksia spinulosa (Hairpin banksia) were especially stunning.

Reaching the cars, having walked just under 10kms in beautiful surroundings,  we all felt renewed and invigorated.  So do come and join us.
