Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers News

15 walkers on Thursday 25 July met at parking spot down Potato Point Road, with Jan Thomas as walk leader promising them an adventure.  On a perfect winters day, they headed along Tarourga Forest Road, before setting off down an old track that came to a dead end.  Then it was a bush bash down to the creek, finding some rocks for morning tea, before they started the main part of the gorge.  Nicknamed by the walkers years ago, the walkers named it Tarourga Gorge as the creek led to the Tarourga Lake just south of Jemisons Point.  The adventure had begun, scrambling over rocks, dodging buttresses growing over rocks, through tall grasses, reeds, over logs, under logs, scrambling up the sides if the walkers came to the odd pool of water.  There were lots of oooh's and ahhs. Walkers really had to stop and look up at the terrain, huge boulders were overlooking this gorge, a variety of different gums, ferns,and banksia's were seen.  The walkers went as far down the creek as they could, where it flattened out a bit, then headed back north making their way through forest with a little bush bashing back to the track they first walked in on, all reached safely back at the cars where Jan Thomas was thanked for the adventurous walk of 7km.  Saturday 27 July, a meeting was held with the walkers to organise the spring/summer program, available late August, on web,
