20 very interested and well informed people visited this week – the Victorian National Parks Association’s Monday afternoon walking group led by Ruth Stirling. It was a glorious sunny day and the Park was resplendent with blooms of wattle, bossiaea, hardenbergia, hakea, heath, dillwynia, leucopogon, glycine and many more.
The tour group caught the bus from the city to the Lorimer Street entrance, lunched at the BBQ shelter then, guided by our Lecki Ord, they walked several kilometres around the lakes, through the heaths (where they spotted a Black-shouldered Kite) and up the lookout hill for a view of the city before leaving on foot for Beacon Cove.
Most had not been to the Park before, those who had were amazed at the progress and everyone was really impressed with what they saw. We hope they will come back when the wildflowers are on show!
