Jul-Dec 2020

On a showery morning following a massive early morning storm 21 walkers met at The Dingeldei Memorial Shelter which was built in 1962, thanks to volunteers.

A.W. (Bill) Dingeldei was a trustee of the park who did considerable work on it himself. Today the Dingeldei picnic area is a quiet, leafy spot, perched on the hill behind Mount Bouddi

We descended through burrawang bush down many steps to the lookout, at the top of a small rocky hill for morning tea with a view to the sea

We descended steeply to the Bouddi Coastal Walk and turned to the Little Beach direction

The track provided views across Bombi Moore                                      and closer view of the Maitland Bay rock platform

We kept a lookout for dolphins as we walked the mostly level track enjoying the wildflowers
