What is fast becoming a SGWAAC tradition, over 30 walkers gathered on the deck overlooking vast grazing land, home to both beef and sheep, for the obligatory briefing.

We were soon on our way to the nearby Bald Hills Wetlands reserve. The meandering walking track leads through a series of sand ridges and thickets of Paperbark, that flood during wet periods, to a sheltered bird hide where you can sit quietly and observe birds feeding within the wetland

Returning to the farm we ventured through long grass, across paddocks and up hills to Wind turbine no. 13 and the so called ‘party place’ where we enjoyed majestic 360 deg views of the surrounds.

There are 12 of the 52 Bald Hills Wind farm turbines on the property which provide and engaging and somewhat mythical ambience to the landscape. 80 metres in height the turbines are surprisingly quiet in the gentle breeze even as we stand beneath the massive blades.

We wander back to the farm house along the road during which we witness the absolute joy of Janet and Phillip Box as they receive news of the birth of their granddaughter.

Back at the farmhouse we were presented with a magnificent and vast smorgasbord of food which could had fed a small army. Not to be deterred, everyone enjoyed the fare and soon managed to clear the many plates

Our thanks to Sue for her generous hospitality and making our final walk for the year such a memorable occasion.
