Last post I promised to continue our walk on Fingal Heads, a stunning peninsular near my home on the North Coast of New South Wales, Australia. This part of the path leads further into an area of bush being regenerated by a volunteer land care group. Tweed Shire Council has co-operated by providing such infrastructure as this lovely board walk.
The path and the boardwalk wind and twist, bringing new viewpoints as we go. It's intriguing ...
As in the first half of our walk, there's lots of detail. I loved the lacey pattern formed by these branches below.
And the floor of the little forest where the leaves fall and dry to form fascinating patterns ...
Occasionally there is a glimpse of what is to come.
The leaves of spiky pandanus palms frame the path here (below).
A tantalising taste of rocks and sea ...
And into the open.
This is the northern end of Fingal Beach with Cook Island just off the coast. The water is the Pacific Ocean which brought James Cook south to 'discover' Australia in 1770.
Here we can look further north towards the man made towers on the Queensland/NSW border, and the prominence which Cook called Point Danger.
To the south and beyond Fingal Head itself - the creamy sands of Dreamtime Beach.
Do you have in your country volunteer groups like ours that work on regeneration and supporting native plants ? Let us know about what you know in a comment below ...
