Mummaga and Brou Lakes

Batemans Bay Bushwalkers explored another corner of Eurobodalla National Park on the weekend when 12 walkers took to the tracks near Mummaga and Brou Lakes just north of Dalmeny.

Starting at the Bodalla Park Rest Area there is a well marked walk track to Mummaga Lake where there are views of white egrets reflected in the still waters.  The walkers then deviated from the marked track to follow old forestry trails through the bush north, crossing Lake Brou Road to find an old abandoned trail to the waters of Lake Brou and flocks of black swans.  The shores of the lake lead to a National Park campsite and to another track which runs along the top of the sand dunes the length of Brou Beach.

Pausing for lunch overlooking the beach, we usually spot a pod of dolphins in the surf, and there they were again, right on cue.  To complete the 13 km circuit back to the Rest Area the walk follows more forest roads and tracks over fairly flat terrain.  Another lovely autumn day was perfect for a long walk by the water and through the bush, with plenty of opportunity for chatting along the way.
