Dalmeny/Narooma Bushwalkers Walk- Thursday 21st August 2020
BERMAGUEE NATURE RESERVE WALK- (Yes this is the old spelling for Bermagui)
Gail Drury led 19 walkers into this Nature Reserve not all that far from the Township. It is an interesting area as historically it has been heavily logged for sleepers and timber. There is some private property a joining the area and some steep tracks leading in and out. The recent rain has promoted new forest growth and we were lucky to have Steve Saunders with us who has a good knowledge of native trees. It is always difficult at the best of times to identify gums and he was a "mine of information" with this regard.
The wattle blossoms were coming out and the reflections in the water holes were something to see. We spent 3 hours or so exploring the area covering approximately 10 kilometres or so. Heather thanked Gail who always goes the "extra mile" with some interesting research into the background and history of the walk area she leads us through. A great day. David Maidment
