Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers tour Eurobodalla Botanic Garden

On our last bushwalk for the year, we were shown around Eurobodalla Botanic Garden, by Margaret Lynch. Margaret planned to show us everything, but as the day warmed we left off some of the bush tracks and enjoyed the features of the botanic garden.

Morning tea was beside the lake and amphitheatre, with natural creek vegetation and aquatic species. The Hill track and Forest Track via Frog Hollow led us to the viewing platform over Deep Creek Dam.

After this it was enjoyable taking our time to explore the Sensory Garden, Rainforest Garden, and the Sandstone Garden next to the Dune Garden. A quick look at the Wisconsin Mound and the Loop Garden before lunch beside Pat's Creek.

After lunch the plant sales area was popular, and Margaret Lynch showed the keen gardeners around the Nursery. We walked 5km and enjoyed the beauty and the growth of the garden. The educational signs along the walking tracks highlight the prominent plants and give a summary of the plant features and uses.

All Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers are reminded that no bushwalks are taken during the summer, and we resume with short early morning bushwalks in February with our main program starting in March. In February we prepare our autumn bushwalking program and all walkers can join in with ideas of bushwalks we can do.
