Bushwalkers walked 14km through a section of Murramarang National Park near North Durras recently burned by the bushfires. Understorey regrowth has been remarkable, and NSW National Parks have worked hard to keep the tracks open. The bushfire, followed by several intense rain and wind storms have brought down many huge trees, which have also had to be cleared off the tracks.
The last rain event made a few short sections of the track soggy, but not impassable. Fortunately Durras Lake is still open to the ocean, so there is no associated flooding. The swamp on the southern section of the walk is brimming with water. This is a fairly flat walk, and about half of it follows the lake shore so there were views at every turn.
