The Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers went on an 11-kilometre hike around the boundary of Jindamar on Thursday, September 6.

Just south of Jindamar is a pocket of National Park, and the walkers found an area where an old homestead used to be along with a number of different plants.

They walked down to Nargal Lake, passing the first red-belly black snake of the season, and took in the sights of the birds on the fresh-water lake.

They took another old trail to get a different view, and found a great spot for a bit of morning tea. The group then retraced their steps back to Bogola Head, which has beautiful views up and down the coast.

The group headed north to Barunga Point, crossed Nandudga Creek, and had some lunch before heading back to the cars.

The 14 walkers thanked Maggie Finch for the walk.

An exciting upcoming bushwalk is the Belimbla Gold Mine trek, west of Nerrigundah in the Dampier State Forest.

It is a difficult, bush-bashing walk as all of the tracks have been unused for a very long time. However, the joy of being able to see the old gold mine makes the walk worth it.
