The walk will start at 9am and last for approximately 2 hours. Bluetts is a forested reserve with heath in much of the understorey, grassy flats, and rocky hillsides.  A fire trail leads up the hill from the entrance gate and there are views all around from the survey point.  Bird and flower species vary throughout the year depending upon rainfall conditions and the forest rings with bird calls in springtime.  Apart from the regular bush birds and seasonal visitors, Chestnut-rumped Heathwren breed here.  Sturdy boots or shoes are suggested because stones on the slope of the fire trails can be slippery.

How to get to Bluetts: Go to Stromlo Forest Park roundabout and turn right onto Uriarra Road.  Travel about 2 km to Denman Prospect Gate on the right hand side of the road.  My car will be parked by the gate. Please be careful if turning across the road at this point as traffic flows swiftly.
