Bob T led 7 walkers on a new exploratory walk up the west arm of Mullendaree Creek.  We stopped for lunch after 4kms when the number of fallen trees over the creek bed made hiking quite an ordeal before heading back. The creek had no running water and only a few pools of black water but it made hiking easier. The creek made a number of turns due to the interesting geology and the accumulation of gravel at the bends showed us it must be quite a spectacular sight after a heavy rain. Despite the warm dry weather the local bird life was very active and our feather collector, Amanda, found a beautiful red, yellow and black tail feather from a glossy black cockatoo. I know this walker found his legs quite tired the next day but it was a most enjoyable hike.
