Sergeant Dan Spiller Memorial Reserve, a new trail found locally. Perfect for an auutumn walk, but perhaps not after heavy rain.
This reserve was offically named in March 2011, in recognition of Sergeant Dan Stiller's dedication to reducing illegal trail bike riding and its damaging enviromental impacts.
This was not lush green parkland, but a deceptive pond of green algae, surprising given all the rain.
Another stretch of green. This time just water logged grass. We had to bush bash to avoid.
A sink hole to avoid as well.
This dappled path drew us down to a lovely, if brown coloured, lake.
Shimmering, pampas grass, flower stalks.
Further on, a board walk took us through a gurgling brook area.
The Sulphur Crested Cockatoos love to nest in tree hollows.
More water on the trail.
We came to a halt here, as the creek was wide, unwelcoming in colour and more than ankle deep.
We were hopeful this crossing would get us back to the carpark. It was not to be, and unless we wanted to retrace our steps some 4 km, we had to return to the above crossing.
We felt it was safer to keep our boots on to cross. Thankfully it was only a couple of k's back to the car.
Time for a re-energising cuppa!
I would love to read your comment.
