Bushwalkers explore dry creek beds

The Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers explored the upper reaches of Makins Creek and Lawlers Creek on Thursday, May 10.

Sixteen trekkers assembled for the walk through the Bodalla State Forest, as they explored rainforests, fire trails, and the many creeks through the spotted gums.

The group started on Red Knob Road, and took an old logging trail to Makins Creek. From there, they headed downstream to Lawlers Creek, passing under an old bridge on the Wagonga Scenic Drive. This section of Makins Creek is very dry, with a rocky creek bed.

Lawlers Creek was also dry, and was forced to turn many times due to rocky walls. One of these turns opened into a grassy area, where the group stopped for lunch.

They then made their way back to Red Knob Road to complete the eight-kilometre hike. Steve Deck was the guide for the day.

The walk on May 12 was canceled due to inclement weather.
