Corrimal's phone tower
With rain looming I headed up Mt Ousley and did a U-turn on the Picton Exit. I parked in the very first truck stop. What a weird spot to stop at, you say. Agreed!
I headed behind the gates through the bush with a brand new group of bushwalkers and two kids. We were headed for Brokers Nose. Where?, you ask. You know that mountain in Corrimal with the TV Antenna on top of it, there!
There are a million tracks branching off the one we followed. The bush is full of trees (obviously), birds nests, Christmas bush, ferns, a spikey yellow flower and a nice white orchid. There were spits in the air as we strolled on.
The first clearing we came to looked out over Balgownie and ruining the view were the usual power lines. But it was still a rewarding view. The hard part hadn't even started yet.
When we hit a track large enough for vehicles, we turned right straining to see the metal tower. As we neared the tower we saw the years of graffiti on the rocks. There is everything from 'Free Palestine' to proclamations of love or friendship. These rocks were the platform for the Brokers Nose view. The view is of Russell Vale to past Wollongong.
