Murmungee Escarpment : July 11

On a perfect winter day we ascended the Murmungee Escarpment near the rail trail at Everton. Our walk was led by Anne Turnbull, and a local landowner, whose property includes grasstrees growing in abundance. After a brief car shuttle, we set off, and had morning tea overlooking a beautiful landscape, including a very interesting ridge…

On a very cool morning, we met at Rotary Park at 8.30am, organised car pooling, headed off to Taminick Gap, and started walking at about 8.50am. There were seven of…
