On Wattle Day, a group of 19 walkers travelled north to Lake Conjola for a lovely, mainly flat 15km walk through the nature reserve at Narrawallee Inlet, along the coast and back along good forested tracks.

With four distinct eco-systems we enjoyed forested areas very different from the Eurobodalla, a swampy area currently dry but full of bird life, a beautiful stretch of beach with fishing dolphins and an old mining area where silica was extracted.

Complete with our own geologist who advised us about the mining area, we also saw the structure that housed the explosives required for this, now an artistically twisted tin shed with a flowering wattle backdrop.
