A 10-kilometre hike for 15 Batemans Bay bushwalkers began by crossing the Australian National University's private property near Kioloa and continued with a gently ascending forest track that soon had the group well warmed up.
The next section was an even steeper climb to the top of Don Moir Hill where the remnants of the World War II Telegraph Station were explored and a restorative cup of tea was enjoyed amongst the lichen covered rocks shaded by beautiful, tall gum trees.
Just looking at this former important part of history had most walkers musing about the role that the structure had played in our nation's defence system.
The walk continued through forest trails that gave glimpses of Kioloa's coastline as it descended to a headland track that led back to Racecourse Beach.
