2015-02-14 Coombabah LakelandsFifteen walkers arrived for a gentle stroll around Coombabah Lakelands, Coombabah, Hollywell and Paradise Point.  High wispy clouds and slight overcast conditions for much of the time kept temperatures down so that the walk was very enjoyable.  The walk through Coombabah Lake Nature Reserve was picturesque with reflections of the Paperbarks in the still water.  Needless to say standing to watch the views was a hazard as mosquitos were in abundance.

 

Report

Paul spotted what we think was a Common Wallaroo (Steve had later checked with his brother) with skin colour bright orange to red.  We managed to get a couple of reasonable photos.  Further on from here the walk was relatively uneventful until we reached Pine Ridge Conservation Park.  A little first aid was required at the fence as Klaus had scratched his arm climbing underneath and it was bleeding profusely.  Fifty metres further on we came across knee deep water.  Half the group decided not to cross while the other hald waded through either with boots on or boots off.  We arranged a meeting place further on.

The meeting place turned out to be the lunch stop at the Centenary Drive Boat Ramp (under reconstruction).  It was very pleasant in the shade and the cool breeze.  We passed under the Ephraim Island and Sovereign Island bridges where the thoughts of refreshing coffee and cakes spurred everyone on to the end and then to Leonie and Peter’s place.  It was A great social walk enjoyed by everyone - Colin
