Friday November 3 to Sunday 5 Black Rocks- Jerusalem Creek 50th Celebration

National Parks are celebrating 50 years of the NPWS at Black Rocks campground on the weekend of the 4-5th November 2017

The Northern Rivers Bushwalking Club has been invited to participate. Free camping is available to the Club from Thurs night 2/11 to Monday night 6/11 in Black Rocks campground. Here’s a rough draft of what we are planning with Parks –

Friday- kayak down Jerusalem Creek with a picnic lunch at the entrance to the ocean.

Saturday- A tour of the Bombing Range and a bushwalk in The Range. After most of it burned last year following a lightning strike in December 2016 there will be a good Christmas Bells show, if they’re out by then.  On Saturday mid-morning til mid-afternoon we will be accompanying Ballina 4WD Club ( this club helps NPWS quite a ot in this area ) along the beach in the Bombing Range to collect plastic rubbish on the beach and spot the nesting Pied Oystercatchers and Beach Stone-curlews.

A BBQ / party on Saturday night 4 Nov, and a bit of commiseration about the state of the environment and howling at the moon.

Sunday …   perhaps a leisurely bushwalk to the mouth of Jerusalem Creek and back via the beach.  Members are invite to make other suggestions on any other days from Thursday 2 through to Tuesday 7th
