Pretty Beach To Durras Mountain Circuit

Sunday 11 March 2018

On Sunday 11 March we woke to a magnificent day that inspired 10 walkers to show up for the above walk. We all squeezed into the two vehicles which had passes for the Murramarang National Park. We drove to Pretty Beach, which was 30 plus kms from Batemans Bay. When we got there we saw a lot of cars in the car park. Being a long weekend for the ACT one cannot blame them for wanting to spend their weekend in such a glorious location.

The walk was a circuit, starting with a bush track towards Mt Durras, which was absolutely enjoyable, the track was better than some of the footpaths around town. The bush was lovely and the elevation was gentle enough for all of us to do it comfortably and thanks to our leader we did not have to rush or exert ourselves. His ambition nicely matched our ability.

On the return leg of the walk, we reached the beach where we had frequent photo stops and enjoyed wonderful scenery. The rocks were a little bit of a challenge but we all managed to get over them safely and with not too much of an effort.

So the 10 fortunate people, who showed up, totally enjoyed the day. Thanks to Rodney, our leader we all loved the walk and all that it had to offer.
