Find yourself a Bunyip
The spring sunshine streams through the forest canopy. The sandy track winds along the spur with glimpses of distant tree covered hills. An Echidna forages amongst the leaf litter and logs, and buries his tender under belly and face at the slightest disturbance.
Burgess Road is closed as it becomes a walking track to The Four Brothers, which are huge granite boulder formations framed by a clear, sweeping view down the valley.
The Bunyip or Buneep, (the later spelling refers to that found on old maps), " ... is a dark furry animal with a round face, small ears and fiery eyes that glow in the dark." (Parks Web). Now does that sound like a Possum seen in the glow of your Dolphin Ever Ready, or a wombat in the beams of your cars headlights?
Whether you camp, picnic, walk tracks or visit Lawson Falls.
