Nineteen members and friends, led by Val Boyan, enjoyed a perfect sunny mid-winter's day for the walk to Curra Moors in Royal National Park.

The banksias were in flower attracting many honeyeaters and white Coral Heath and pink Swamp Heath were abundant.

Lunch was had overlooking the ocean at Curracurrong and Eagle Rock. As if specially ordered by Val, just as we were finishing lunch, two whales passed by just off shore heading north.

As we returned along the recently completed metal walkway (part of the Coast Track), the keen eyes of our youngest walker spotted an Echidna digging in beneath a shrub.

It was a good day, highlighted by good company and good scenery.
