Six EZY walkers met at Artarmon Reserve under overcast skies, but as the walk progressed the weather improved and we had a lovely day for
our walk.

We set off along the bike track, passing various points of interest: the old stone bridge over Flat Rock Creek at Willoughby Road, the
incinerator designed by Walter Burley Griffin, various art works and the Henry Lawson Cave.

We had morning tea at the Cave, where Robyn M read the poem “Andy’s gone with cattle” by Henry Lawson.

When we reached the start of the Dawson Track we had a big surprise. The track was roped off; closed because of sewerage overflows.
Fortunately Pat P had brought a photocopy of a road map of the area, so we were able to make our way to Tunks Park by road. We passed
by Dawson Park, (above where the Dawson Piggery used to be), Cammeray School, the Suspension Bridge and many lovely old houses.
We did not walk down the 180 steps of the Tunks Park Link Track, but continued to the park by road.

We had lunch at Tunks Park beside the waters of Middle Harbour.  After lunch we walked up Cliff Avenue to the bus stop near the bridge,
to catch a bus to North Sydney.  We had coffee at the Greenwood Plaza, then caught a train back to Artarmon. We walked back to the cars
at the Reserve through the bush beside the railway line. It was a most enjoyable walk. 

Walkers:  Helen A, Barrie, Lyndy and Rex were led by Robyn Mi and Pat P.
