The Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers got off to an early start on Thursday, August 9, as 13 hiker set off on their annual trek up Gulaga.

The group were briefed at the bottom of the mountain, then started the five-kilometre climb to the saddle. The group decided to stop at half-way rock for a cuppa and a rest.

The walk is listed as a medium/hard walk, and the walkers started feeling it towards the top of the climb.

The group had another rest at the saddle, before deciding to head up to the trig via the rain forest.

It was still early when they got there, but the group was hungry after all the exercise, so they decided to have an early lunch.

The group planned to take another track to see the tors, but they decided to leave that walk for another day because an Aboriginal Elder was there with a group of people.

The walkers made their way back down the track to their cars, where they thanked Heather Ferguson for leading them on the 14-kilometer walk.

An easier bushwalk was also offered by Elaine Cuthbert and Maggie Finch, who led another group along the bush trails around Narooma. The seven-kilometre walk was on the ocean side of the Princes Highway.

There was no bushwalk held on Saturday, August 11, as an enthusiastic group led by Wendy Selby and Jan Smith explored the area between Pigeonhouse and Bynagee Walls on Monday and Tuesday.
