CNFN walks and other events: June to September 2017
All walks begin at 10:00 am. Bring warm and waterproof clothes, hat, lunch, hand lens, notebook etc.
Sun 4th June: Black Sugarloaf, Birralee
Meet at 10:00 am at the end of Denmans Road, off Priestley's Road, Birralee, for a leisurely walk along the track to Sarah and Ron’s place.
Sun 2nd July: Walk to Anniversary Bay, Rocky
Cape National Park
Start at 10:00am from the Boat Ramp, at the western end of Sisters Beach. Follow the signs to 'Boat Ramp', where we shall meet in the large car park. The walk takes at least 2.5 hours, in a circuit past Wet Cave, up through high coastal heath, down to a sand and cobble beach, then back up along the grassy headlands. If the weather is inclement, it can be quite exposed, so come prepared. Reasonable fitness to climb some steepish hills and walk 7km on variable surfaces is required.
You may see a range of coastal vegetation, heath, grassland and coastal birds, and some delightful coastal scenery (if the weather is fine). (Leader: Ian Ferris)
