Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers news

EXPLORING MYSTERY BAY/BILLY'S BEACH AND CORUNNA POINT.


A group of approximately 20 walkers were away last week exploring Culburra, Shoalhaven and the Beecroft Peninsula area and meanwhile another 12 walkers roamed in a favourite area nearer to home. Maggie Finch led us around the spotted gum forest, at the back of Mystery Bay, through the camping ground, in and around the historic Corunna Velodrome and then onto the entrance of Corunna Lake where we had morning tea. It has only been a matter of weeks since the Lake was open to the ocean and some of the discussion was whether we will get a local prawning season this summer? It has been many years since a good one has occurred. We made our way towards beautiful Billy's Beach along the cliff top, taking in the ocean vistas from the lookouts and descended to the beach to have a closer look at layered rocky outcrops that are a highlight of this spot. We then went back through the campground to the Mystery Bay Headland and then via the Beach and back to the Picnic tables near the carpark.It was a lovely cool morning to walk approximately 8 klm and especially when were finishing lunch a humpback and calf came in close to the Point on there way south. This is an area we walk in often and never get tired of as it has iconic south coast vegetation and spectacular ocean views. Maggie was thanked by us all before we made our way home.   David Maidment
