MALLACOOTA - WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE!!!!!
Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers decided to travel to Mallacoota to explore the Croajingolong National Park and surrounds for our 2019 Spring Trip away. Karabethong Lodge was the main residential venue but numbers attending were so great (32) other s stayed in the caravan park and apartments. Happy hour was held at 5.00clock each afternoon where the days walks were assessed and discussed and the next days program was arranged. As usual walks for all abilities and wants were catered for, with shorter easier ones and longer harder walks undertaken, nobody missed out. Standout walks and places visited were Coastal Walk from Shipwreck Beach back towards Mallacoota (12klm), Genoa Peak,the Lake boat trip to the northern shore and Spotted Dog Gold Mine and the Double Creek walk along the southern shore of the Lake back to Karbethong Lodge. A feature of the all the walks were the wildflowers and flowering T Tree. Many people commented they had never seen such a prolific flowering of the T Tree and the nectar could be smelt as we walked through the stands.Bird life is abundant in this area which is wonderful to see. So many whales were sighted on the Tuesdays Coastal walk, the numbers couldn't be counted and yes Koala's are numerous in region. They were seen on our walks, as well as in a tree opposite the coffee shop in the main street what a treat. This is a truely magical area for lovers of the Australian bush, in a region tucked away from the "hurly burly" of city life.The last evening was spent winding down at Lucy's, the famous local asian resturant before everybody went on there way. The general feeling was that everybody had fun.
