Bay bushwalkers Rob Lees, Sharon Macdonald, Karen MacLatchy, Bob Thurbon, and Elaine Edwards.Creek walking is a favourite ofmany members of Batemans Bay Bushwalkers, and SharonMacdonald’s walk up the bed of Nelligen Creek and its headwaters is particularly lovely. TheCreek rises in the steep rocky country under Bolaro Mountain and that’s where the walkers headed.
One of the geologically inclined,pointed out the pink pegmatite rock which was mixedwith the more predominant granite bed of the creek. It was the softer pegmatite which had eroded into pink sand and determined the direction of the creek.
Members enjoyed skirting the pools of water,admiring the tenacious fig trees growing out of the rock, and marvelling at the banks of rockorchids massed on boulders at every turn.
Next Saturday another creek walk will be tackled, led by Bob & Elaine. Adventurous people who might like to participate can phone Bob on 4474 4170 or Elaine on 048744170.
