Report on walk in New England NP 6th February from Nick Stephenson

Nine people participated in this walk in the New England NP on Sunday 6th February.

The walk started at the Banksia Point picnic area, we first walked along the Lyrebird Track through Antarctic Beech rainforest just below the escarpment. Here and there we encountered moss-covered waterfalls on the basalt cliffs that towered above us. Leaving the forest, we then followed the broad flat-topped ridge to Wrights Lookout where we rested for morning tea amidst stunted heath-like vegetation struggling to survive on the scant sandy soil developed on the underlying Trachyte.

Wrights Lookout provides stunning views over the coastal hinterland to the east. On a clear (but not on this occasion) one catches glimpses of the ocean 60k away. From Wrights lookout we retraced our to Robinsonís Knob track, which we followed westwards to Point Lookout rd. From there, tea Tree falls walk through eucalypt and Banksia forest and woodland (crossing little Styx river on the way) back to Banksia Point for a late picnic lunch.
