8.00am start. Meet at Booderee Botanical Gardens car park (Yellow arrow maps)
We will have morning tea at the gardens in the picnic area there after our walk. We will then do a further walk here beforeheading to our afternoon walking spot.
Walk and picnic lunch at Murray’s Beach - see blue arrows
NOTE: Entry to Booderee Park is $11.00 per car.
Murray’s Beach is a heathland area that has some fantastic birding opportunities. Bristlebird, Southern Emu-Wren and Chestnut-rumped heathwren are all possibilities here.
On our trip back to the van park we will call into Green Patch which is a beautiful spot and good for a wander and afternoon tea. If time permits we may walk the 2.4km Telegraph Creek Nature Trail.
Saturday Night: BBQ Dinner and bird count at the van park. Please bring own meat and salad.
Sunday Morning: We will play this time by ear as checkout time will be 10am. We may do an early walk around the area where we are staying closer to the van park. Some people may like to bird until lunch time but as we are towing a 23 foot caravan this is more difficult for us.
