Betty led 20 walkers, including 5 visitors, on an 11 km walk to see flowering rock orchids on the granite outcrops along Spring Creek. The hills along the firetrail leading up to the creek kept us quiet but that soon turned to raucous chatter as we found the first orchids in full bloom. The further we proceeded down the creek the more flowers we saw and I have never seen so many cameras in action on a walk.

While the hills on the firetrail had to be tackled again back to the cars, we were a happy crew having enjoyed such a great flowering event. For future reference Betty says she uses the 2nd half of September as her guide for seeing the flowering orchids. Thanks to Betty for this enjoyable walk.
