Early start to the day was worth the effort for Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers

On Thursday, November 8 a group of six Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers enjoyed the delights of the Kangarutha Track, south of Tathra. 

The earlier than usual start to the day was quickly forgotten once  the walkers headed into this unique landscape.

This time heading north with the wind behind them the walkers began at the Wallagoot Lake picnic area and ended at the lookout above Kianinny Bay just south of Tathra.

This pleasant walk offers a range of scenery, including several sections through coastal forests, lots of rocky headlands with a variety of coastal vegetation and interesting sandy and pebbly beaches.

Highlights included the colours of the red rocks contrasting with the blue sea and white clouds, several whale sightings and some up-close encounters with goannas.

Walkers were also saddened to see the bush fire devastation just north of Kianinny Bay.

Luckily Bournda National Park and the Kangarutha Track escaped intact and remain a special place for bushwalkers to enjoy.

Wendy Selby and Jan Smith where thanked for guiding the bushwalkers through this lovely part of Bournda National Park.

Another walk of 5 km was around Narooma exploring the old creeks and streams.

Walkers saw old garden sheds and chook yards that are no longer used and are now covered in small bush and trees, showing the history of that area.

More bushwalks are in our program, and bushwalkers are reminded to put their name down for the Christmas Party on Saturday, November 24.
