Fourteen walkers made the best of the excellent weather to explore an area of Moruya State Forest near Turlinjah. Using some motorcycle tracks (thankfully no two wheeled vehicles were encountered), some dirt roads, namely Kays and Triangle, Bob led us around forest close to Coila Creek’s tributaries. As there was no recent rain, the creek crossings in the gullies were dry, but made for lovely cool ferny areas where the still water reduced the temperature – just right for refreshing us prior to the next upward hill!
We were shown Green helmeted native orchids (easy to miss and step on by the unwary, but thankfully off the track so they survived our visit) and spent some time checking out the animal tracks on sandy parts of the path.
Another lovely walk in the Eurobodalla.
