Above :Batemans Bay bushwalkers lined up on a log just prior to their walk. Walk leader Joan Barrass seated on the right before she leads the way. Thirteen Batemans Bay bushwalkers set out on a 6 kilometre circuit from Long Beach to Maloney’s Beach at low tide, and headed north along the sand and then around the base of the headland. The rocks there, from their geological past have formed into small, sharp vertical shafts that required steady balance and a careful placement of feet to avoid mishaps.
The group were fortunate and all walkers traversed the area intact. Walkers climbed a narrow track, well worn by locals, to the cliff tops and enjoyed the coastal views and some interesting beach house architecture on their return journey. For more information go to www.baybushwalkers.org.au
