As a favourite winter walk, Gulaga did not disappoint 14 walkers who went to its summit and back on Thursday 1 August. With bright sunshine, cool temperatures and gentle breezes, Gulaga is a special place to be on days such as these. At nearly 800 metres high, this walk has a decent slog uphill but the changing vegetation and occasional views of Wallaga Lake and the ocean beyond provide compensation as we walk. At the start, we divided into two groups so that some could ascend more leisurely. No matter the pace, however, we all enjoyed the winter sunshine reflecting off the lush vegetation, the pleasure of reaching the summit via the interesting rainforest and mossy rocks, and the spectacular granite tors on the ridge off the saddle. It's a nice feeling to get back to the cars knowing the mountain is so close to home, and will be there to enjoy again soon. Gulph Creek Comans Mine With predicted winds coming, 10 Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers on Thursday 8 August, thought they might just get their walk in. However on arriving at Gulph Creek Comans Mine area, they were greeted with a huge gust of wind. Knowing the winds would get worse, they decided to drive back to safety and have a cuppa at Bodalla Bakery. On Saturday 10 August, it was still windy and a bit cold. A short social walk was held around Narooma with 10 attending, starting from Ken Rose Park out along the Inlet side following the cycle walk ways beside Riverside Drive, along the new path down McMillan Road passing the oval and swimming pool, they had a rather cold morning tea at Rotary Park, then headed back along the path to Ken Rose.
