Nevins Bend, Murray River Walk, January 14

A delightfully cool day, following the previous day’s rain, meant ideal condition for the 25 participants for this walk along the banks of the River Murray.

Our convoy of cars, snaking its way through the forest tracks, to Duffy’s Beach for the commencement of the walk, must have been a real surprise for summer campers enjoying the peaceful riverside location.

The walk proceeded to Nevins Beach, following the river bank, and then continued upstream to Redbank Beach, before returning via Wattle Track, to make a circuit through the red gum forest. Just one wallaby stopped inquisitively by the bank, and one kayaker was sighted on the river, which is running a banker.

Following the eight kilometre easy walk, the whole group retreated to Byramine Homestead, historic residence of the Hume family, where lunch which was eaten in the delightful homestead grounds, and many of the group took advantage of the opportunity to inspect the historic residence.
