One frosty morning thirty eight brave walkers car-shared out to the farthest reaches of metropolitan Sydney, Cattai national Park, where they enjoyed a five km walk in very pretty, almost untouched, bush, experiencing perfect winter weather.
A great variety of woodlands greeted them (Rainforest walk, Bloodwood trail, ScribblyGum Forest, Wetlands Walk.) The land is part of the Cumberland Plain and provided a source of food for Aborigines for thousands of years. It was then granted to Thomas Arndell, assistant surgeon in the First Fleet whose homestead is still there but is now enjoyed by many birds, kangaroos, wombats, walkers and campers.
A rather spread out barbecue was enjoyed by a total of 46 souls and our president united us all in thanks and good hopes for the next semester.
