Bay Bushwalkers: Potato Point Forest, Lake & Beach
Twenty four walkers turned out on a cool autumn day for a 10km circuit to Lake Tarourga and Jemisons Point. The first section was a hilly path through the forest. Usually it’s fairly boggy in the bottom of the gullies, but at the moment it’s bone dry. Lake Tarourga has also receded, although there’s still plenty of birdlife on the water.
We had lunch on the rocks at the base on Jemisons Point enjoying the view south along Brou Beach to Dalmeny, Gulaga and Montague Island. Then we climbed to the top of the headland to see the view north to Potato Point and Tuross.
