Staying Connected: Simone recommends some lovely walks for Exercise during Lock-down
Simone writes: “I have recently been on two local walks that have stunning wild flowers at the moment. I dressed up on the 1st walk for a spring celebration, one ‘didgeridoo’ asked if I was going to the Races 🤣. The Waratah walk is near the Leisure Centre with some amazing Waratahs on display at this time of the year. They are an Australian flower and a cultural symbol, ranging from stamps to the NSW state flag. This Waratah walk is in the ‘Ulladulla Wildflower Reserve’.
The other beautiful walk is at the ‘South Pacific Headland Reserve’ also known as the ‘South Pacific Heathland Reserve’. Its entry is off Dowling street Ulladulla. The flannel flowers are about to all bloom. Both are easy flat walks suitable for everyone. I think some swimmers may enjoy these. Stay safe. Cheers Simone”.
‘South Pacific Headland walk’ also known as the ‘South Pacific Heathland Reserve’
The South Pacific Heathland Reserve is a 14 hectare flora and fauna reserve on the headland between Rennies Beach and Racecourse Beach at the southern end of Ulladulla.
It is a special place because of its rich community of rare plants, animals and birds, including the glossy black cockatoo, and spectacular coastal views. Spot whales from the viewing platforms during their migration season.
