After parking the cars near the boundary of Elizabeth Farm property, the walk took them along fire trails and old logging routes towards the Swamp Trail, they scrambled around huge trees that had fallen since they last walked here 10 years ago. Finding the Swamp Trail which was easy as it was signposted they followed it for a couple of k's before finding another old logging track that bought them back down to the boundary of Elizabeth Farm. Bush bashing was required following the boundary down to the creek where they had lunch with one leech. Scrambling out of the creek the walkers made their way up back to the fire trail which led them to the cars. During the walk they saw a number of orchids, views of Gulaga, seen or heard at least 12 different species of bird life including King Parrots, Black Cockatoos, Finches, Lyrebirds. At the cars Jan was thanked by the walkers for the walk of 9km. On Saturday 22 June, 5 bushwalkers met at Mystery Bay, for easy walk. Starting from the rotunda they walked through the bush behind houses to the 1080 track, turning north headed into Mystery Bay Camping Ground, keeping to the fence line towards Billy's beach and then to Corunna Headland for the historic Velodrome, built in the late 1890's. The walkers had morning tea at Corunna Lake entrance then headed back to Billy's Beach taking overgrown tracks along the cliff top behind the camping area back to Mystery Bay. Maggie Finch was thanked for the 7km walked and Maggie was surprised that none of the walkers had been in this area before.
