Im sure it was a nice walk but there was so many effing mozzies about that I spent most of it slapping myself and shaking my limbs. Spray yourself good before you go.

Interesting walk. Saw lots of wildlife on previous visit but not much on this visit.

Pleasant. Quiet. Along the adjusted access trail to the bitumen track two giant gum trees.
