Registration essential mrobbins (at) home.netspeed.com.au, with your name and phone number, and name and number of an emergency contact. Maximum 16 attendees.

This is a reasonably easy 7.5 km all day bushwalk in northern Namadgi National Park, involving a short car shuffle. From Booromba Rocks carpark we will use the Australian Alps Walking Track to slowly walk down Booromba Creek to Bushfold Flats. After lunch we will then walk out to the gate on Apollo Road via the southern end of the Mt Tennent Fire Trail.

However, please make sure to bring a hat, water, sunscreen, lunch and binoculars, and wear sturdy shoes.

The Booromba Creek section involves a descent on a narrow track, followed by a flat section around Bush-fold Flats and a steepish descent on the fire trail with loose gravel underfoot, and finally a short climb back to Apollo Road. It is suitable for reasonably fit folk who are steady on their feet. Walking poles optional.

At the end of October, in these wet creek and dry forest habitats, we might expect to see, or at least hear, Eastern Yellow Robin, Scarlet Robin, Golden Whistler and Rufous Whistler and we’ve a good chance of hearing Eastern WhipbirdSuperb Lyrebird and maybe Pilotbird. Raptors are a good possibility in the open country.

 

Unless I’ve had 16 registrations before Saturday 28/10/23, and organised car shuffle, we’ll meet at 8.30 am at the Namadgi Visitors Centre carpark, where we will arrange the car shuffle logistics and carpool.
