By David Maidment Bushwalkers In And Around Flood Water.
Steve Deck led a large contingent of walkers ( 29 logged on ) South from Bingie Bingie Point towards Coila Lake.This is a classic coastal area we don't visit that much and has significant aboriginal sites. There was some beach walking, dune rambling and coastal forest areas that was explored but large parts were under water due to the recent rainfall. The length of the walk was shortened and we had to backtrack a few times but nevertheless it was an enjoyable 7 to 8 klm walk. The walk finished back at Bingie Point where Steve was thanked.
On Saturday Margaret Lynch led Eleven walkers around the Eurobodalla Botanic Gardens explaining the bushfire recovery program that is being undertaken at the moment.It was a perfect day to observe the regrowth and have a quick look at Deep Creek Dam which had it's observation platform damaged in the fires. Bev Brazel thanked Margaret for the 5.5 klm walk and many of the walkers had lunch in the Gardens before heading home.
