The now dry weather enabled us to go driving and walking again, today.

Our target was the Bournda National Park, like the Mimosa Rocks National Park, another long and narrow coastal reserve, this one to the south of Tathra.


We took the Merimbula road, south from Tathra, then the Wallagoot Lake road east, to that lake, in the Bournda National Park. From the car park at the end of the track, we followed a walking track through the scrub, to the beach and lake.

Wallagoot Lake

This section of Bournda National Park was an interesting contrast to Gillards Beach, being flatter and having the lake inlet, compared to the cliffs that backed Gillards Beach. It was a really pretty area, with banksia dominated coastal scrub.

I loved the reflections of the cloud banks in the waters of Wallagoot Lake, and the overall light effects on the lake.

The beach was excellent for walking on.

On the return to camp, we took a detour along Wallagoot Lane, through the farming country, and emerged onto the road to Bega, where we turned right to go back to Tathra.

It had been another pleasant day.
