Stunning walk along the Loddon

Walking north along the eastern bank of the Loddon River near Baringhup through stunning redgum trees on a beautiful sunny day, a sizable group heard stories of geology, Indigenous occupation, farming, hydrology, architecture, and natural history. Contributions to these stories were from the local farmers Kerrie and Rob Jennings, cultural historian and geologist, Barry Golding, and naturalist, Frances Cincotta. Sunday’s FOBIF walk was led by Gen Blades, Lisa Hall, Phil Robertson & Lesley Hodgson as part of a larger project of Walking the Loddon.

    Walking along the Loddon was really lovely and nice hot day and lots of shade trees. Does Bernard or any of the others who I know, is anyone interested in doing one of those Birding trips, now possibly on again, and June is the best month I was told, they are three days trips the mini bus picks you up at your accommodation in Port Moresby, and incredible 3-days seeing these beautiful tropical birds (we have then also in Darwin in the botanical gardens) but not nearly as the ones in PNG are. It’s plane from Darwin or boat from Cairns, and you book your own accommodation, for me the YWCA in the main street, mini bus picks you up every morning at 9 a.m. lunch included, and different area each day, incl. Mt. Hagen, and these beautiful babies are incredible. Is there anyone from Bernard’s bushwalking group who would want to do this three day trips with me. From what I understand, they’ve started up the birding trips again, (after Covid!). LOVE FROM PAM-
