Impromptu Walkers meet at Jemisons

Jemisons Point and Tarouga become quite 'crowded' in the week of March 13, as both Bush Walking AND Walking for Pleasure groups chose that area as their destination for the day. For the Walking for Pleasure group it involved a walk along a bush track to the headland overlooking Brou Beach and Lake Tarouga at Jemisons Point. They then returned for a lovely BYO lunch together.

Walking for Pleasure walks begin at 11am sharp and last 1 to 1½ hours, or less, depending on one's ability. Afterwards enjoy a BYO picnic lunch together, so bring a chair/seat to be comfortable. Good walking shoes and protection from the weather is all that is needed to join our group, so come walking with us, make new friends, and enjoy yourself. Please note that the walks are never cancelled due to the weather, because though it may be raining at your place it frequently will not be raining at the walk venue. Make up your own mind, but we recommend that you attend. 3rd April w047 MORUYA: RIVERSIDE PARK—HOSPITAL From the north follow the Princes Highway to Moruya. At the southern end of the Moruya River bridge turn left into Shore Street, which leads to the Park. From the south follow the Princes Highway to Moruya. At the second roundabout turn right into Ford Street, which leads to the park. Drive on the sealed road through the made area, then park on the grass near the trees beside the river. We will follow the path along the river, under the highway, and past the Hospital. We then walk back to the park for lunch. 10 APRIL w066 TUROSS HEAD: TUROSS BOATSHED-WALK AROUND AREA This week we will meet at the Tuross Boatshed & Cafe. To get there, turn off the Princes Highway into Hector McWilliam Drive. Follow Hector McWilliam Drive for about 5 km to the T-junction "GIVE WAY" sign, turn right, then turn into the second road on the right, Trafalgar Road. Follow Trafalgar Road to the parking area near the Boatshed, drive through the parking area to the road down to the waterside where we will park our cars. From there, we will walk around the area, including Chatham Park, returning to the picnic area for our lunch. Fish & chips perhaps? A lunch suggestion is to pre-order your fish & chips, indicate the time of your return and collect at the end of our walk. 17 APRIL w056 CONGO CAMPING GROUND: CONGO ROAD AND BEACH WALK From the north drive south along the Princes Highway through Moruya, take the South Head Road at the roundabout just south of Moruya town, drive for about 1.8km, and then turn right to Congo. From the south take the Bingi turnoff from the Princes Highway just south of Bergalia (9 km south of Moruya), and then take the first turnoff to the left to Congo. Congo Road becomes the main street of Congo, houses both sides. At the north end is the entry to the Campground on the sea side. We will all meet at the Congo camping ground area. Come along and enjoy this beautiful area. We will walk south along Congo Road and the Dreamtime Trail, then to the beach and back over Congo Point on easy wooden steps to the campground. 24 APRIL w006 NELLIGEN From Batemans Bay drive north-west on the Kings Highway, turn left into Maisies Lane just after crossing the Clyde River into Nelligen, then turn left again into Wharf Street. We will park our cars at the park edge near the wharf. Our walk will be across the bridge, through the picnic area on Thule Road then on to Bridge View Road and Sproxtons Lane, returning to our cars for lunch.
