Dalmeny/Narooma Bushwalkers : Grey Myrtles


Steve Deck led 7 walkers back into the Whittakers Creek area, to complete the series of 5 walks, before the commencement of the Spring Program . We had been in some of this area a few weeks ago but the Creek was still flowing well, taking all water down to Brou Lake and  at present out to sea. This is a pleasant walk with some road walking, some bush tracks and bush/creek walking. It is a little rough in some places with some very large old trees and plenty of creek crossings. The lower section, a tributary of Whittakers Creek, is a gem.It is unburnt rainforest, with a carpet of mulch  under towering Grey Myrtles. A very beautiful area to have lunch and take in the silence of the bush. We made our way out the bush and back to the cars, where Miriam thanked Steve for once again putting this walk on and everybody expressed how special it was to be in this little visited rainforest gully.

In the future we now have a comprehensive Spring Program ahead of us with some classic south coast walks planned up and down the coast from south of Bermagui to north of Tuross. We are a Covid responsible Club and have a tested protocol.
