On Sunday 20th November another successful KARUAH HERITAGE WALK took place.
Our congratulations and thanks to all who assisted in making this walk a special occasion. Special thanks to all the volunteers-those doing the many registrations, those preparing the food, those doing hidden tasks, the guides, the ferrymen, the Aboriginal Land Council for transport and first aid station, for Tahlee afternoon teas and tours and especially for the total organisation and smooth flowing day.
The approximately 114 people who registered enjoyed a sausage sizzle and then set off in groups of 10/12 to walk across the bridge, cross the Yarimbah Creek with the assistance of Holdom’s oyster punt, then walk along the original old road above the tidal water line before tracking through the regenerated bushland to Tahlee House, a distance of between 5-7 kms.
The guides expanded on what was set down in the free booklet that each registered walker was given, highlighting points of interest such as ‘the 3 bridges’, the corduroy road(probably the oldest in Australia), road formations, No 1 Farm and of course Tahlee House.
Once again on behalf of all the walkers who took part, our sincere thanks for an interesting and worthwhile walk through our own local Heritage. The photo shows quite clearly how well preserved this corduroy section of the road is even after 170 years. A Happy Walker
