Batemans Bay Bushwalkers followed a 10km circuit along forest tracks through Murramarang National Park on the weekend.  Starting at North Head Road, they took a gated track through several gullies, eventually emerging at the Old Highway.  From there they passed through one of Murramarang’s iconic twisted gum forests to Myrtle Beach, pausing on the beach for a morning tea break.

Leaving the southern end of Myrtle Beach they followed the quiet backtracks to the Big Tree – a huge spotted gum spared by logging.  Then it was a gentle incline back to North Head Road and the end of the walk.
