The beaches and headlands between Congo and Mullimburra Point made a colourful backdrop for last Thursday's bushwalk under sunny skies. Fourteen walkers enjoyed this coastal scenery and the forests along a section of the Dreaming Track in Eurobodalla NP, making a round trip of about 11km.

Before lunch, some enjoyed a swim at Honeymoon Beach and others just a wade at the water's edge on what was quite a warm and thirsty day.

This bushwalk went through various coastal scrub and twisted gum trees before reaching Meringo Creek and its small lagoon. We enjoyed walking around the coastal side which is densely vegetated between and over the sand dunes, and then the beach displaying high basalt headlands which have been eroded by the sea.

We explored Mullimburra Point with its tiny 150m Honeymoon Beach which is neatly wedged between tall rocky points and surrounded by dense vegetation that survives the coastal sea breeze. The ocean side and southern side of Mullimburra Point we will explore when we next visit this lovely area.

Our thanks to Steve Deck for showing and explaining this interesting part of our coast.   Meanwhile, on Saturday, the proposed Narooma walk was cancelled as the popular Bermagui Seaside Fair was enjoyed by a lot of the bushwalkers. 

Our walk on March 15 will cover the 100 fully curated Outdoor and Indoor sculptures and include the wonderful Bermagui headlands. More information about the Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers is on our website www.dalmenynaroomabushwalkers.info.
