Twenty-four Batemans Bay bushwalkers turned out on a cool autumn day for a 10-kilometre circuit taking in Lake Tarouga and Jemisons Point.
The first section of the hike was a hilly path through the forest where it is usually boggy at the bottom of the gullies but, at present it’s bone dry.
Lake Tarouga has also receded, although there is still plenty of birdlife on the water.
The group paused on the rocks at the base of Jemisons Point to enjoy extensive views south along Brou Beach to Dalmeny, Gulaga and Montague Island.
Walkers then climbed to the top of the headland to take in the northern vistas of Potato Point and Tuross Head.
Batemans Bay Bushwalkers have two walks a week of varying grades. Visitors are welcome on walks and are covered by our insurance for three walks per financial year.
Walks are led by volunteer Walk Leaders, who carry a GPS, topographic map, and when appropriate, a safety beacon. More info at www.baybushwalkers.org.au.
