 Be aware of any current Govt Covid-19 rulings or provisions. 

Meet at the southern end of the Lavington Coles carpark on Urana Rd, at 8.30am. From here we can arrange a car pool for the 30km trip to Burrumbuttock, NSW.

The Wirraminna Nature Reserve walks are all flat.  I will lead you around the 1.5km landcare walk then send everyone off on the self guided garden and wattle walks (about 1km and cannot get lost, except for 10%); guide brochures should be available.

NO DOGS ALLOWED.

Because there is no cafe in Burrumbuttock and the nature park has a good picnic area; I reckon a feast of home made goodies is on the program for morning tea. Let's all bring a plate (and bring your own tea or coffee etc), and if you forget or can't manage, don't worry, there should be plenty to share.

Toilets are available at the picnic area within the nature reserve.

As the picnic area is near the carpark; there is no need to carry morning tea in your backpack.

After, we will do a gentle 3km walk up into the nearby Burrumbuttock Woodland.

Any late cancellations please call me on 0456 100 183.
