Myrtle Beach, Big Tree

Sunday 4 April 2021

Easter Sunday saw more people than usual on the beaches in Murramarang National Park near South Durras, but we generally had the bush tracks to ourselves, apart from a couple of cyclists.

Our 10 km Easy/Medium walk started at South Durras Village and traversed Mill Beach and Wasp Head.  We passed above Emily Miller Beach and Dark Beach, then dropped down onto Myrtle Beach for a morning tea break in the shade.  The group then took forest tracks to the west and then north through dappled shade.  This section of the forest has quite a few large trees and branches down, which we skirted.

As the temperature climbed towards 28 deg C, we stopped at the top of a hill for lunch, and then it was an easy meander back to the village.
