Chauncy Vale

Thursday 9 November 2023 It seemed time for another trip to Chauncy Vale with a barbeque lunch.    The   original Chauncy family home “ Day Dawn Cottage” was visited followed by walk.   Time didn’t allow for anything other than a short walk as we had planned a barbeque lunch on the deck of the meeting room.     Information on the property is online .

The West Thumb

  Three Thumbs The West Thumb     Tuesday 31 October   With weather better in the east, it was a walk to the West Thumb, the peak on from the Three Thumb high point.    A scree had to be negotiated to get there but it was generally stable and not a concern.    Cheeseberry were prolific with varied colours.   Pultenaea juniperina Cheeseberry   Cyathodes glauca Top of Three Thumbs Three Thumbs peak 549m Cheeseberry   Cyathodes glauca   Cheeseberry   Cyathodes glauca  

Cape Pillar

 17 - 19 October 2023 There were a few options with Cape Pillar being chosen. The weather for the three days was very good. Bare Knoll campsite was good with the platforms able to take two tents each. The flowers were excellent especially on the plains and with such nice conditions the views along the cliff tops were spectacular. An interesting side note are some of the place names, stemming from the exploring parties of 1966/67, including Ellarwey Valley. It was coined from a joke "where the hell are we?'     Hibbertia Melaleuca squamea Arch tree The Blade and Tasman Island Pimelea niva The Blade The Blade A photo album can be viewed by clicking here or from the image below.   Cape Pillar
