Meet at 8.30am at Tharwa – when coming from Tuggeranong turn sharp right as soon as you cross the bridge and drive to the carpark at end of the dirt road. The track is quite an easy 1.3km out and back walk.

Let me know if you are coming – name and number, and name and number of an emergency contact to me at

Post event report

Fourteen hardy souls undertook this quite easy walk along the river. Initially the weather seemed benign, but quickly deteriorated. A few spots of rain turned into a shower, which soon included hail. Thankfully it didn’t last, but it was then very cold. That was perhaps why some birds were reluctant to join us. The usual Dollarbirds were absent, and while Rainbow Bee-eaters were heard near the causeway, they stayed hidden. A male Leaden Flycatcher showed nicely as we finished, and Red-browed Finches were moving through the blackberries at various places along the track.
