Gathering by the riverbank in Batemans Bay we felt sure that today’s walk would be a good one! So off we set, thirteen of us, the walk start point being the forest in the Brooman area.

Having parked the cars it was not long before we crossed a small creek surrounded by rainforest, including many Cabbage Tree Palms. We knew that we had a few hills in front of us, however the many  wildflowers along the track, and the sight of some majestic trees still standing after forestry logging, kept us sufficiently distracted so that the hills slipped away under our feet.

Though much of the track was shaded, we certainly welcomed the slight breeze that greeted us on the crest of the hills! Eventually, with 9kms under our belt, and the day warming, our cars were a welcome sight indeed.
