True to form, the Batemans Bay Bushwalkers like to vary things a bit and get out to some of the best and less well known beauty spots in the shire, as we did today, our leader, Rob, taking us south past Narooma.
In a pocket of Eurobodalla National Park, sixteen walkers enjoyed a lovely 11km walk. We started walking in dappled shade through woods to Bogola Head. Here, with mild sunny weather and calm sea, we had fine views of Montague island and three humpback whales. Some saw seals and dolphin and we watched an immature sea eagle cruise past.
Fullers beach at low tide was good walking and we skirted around the dramatic colourful rocks at the next headland where we stopped for lunch after disturbing a swamp wallaby who thought he had the beach to himself.
Freshwater Nargal Lake did not disappoint with it’s flock of swans and serenity. We walked on to Corunna Lake which has a lovely primitive campsite and the brooding backdrop of Gulaga (Mt Dromedary). A few gentle hills kept our muscles working and the perfect weather made for an excellent walk.
