 +This walk, with variations, at this time of year was once a regular feature of the programme and was well attended. The leader hopes it will be again. There will be about two miles to walk the first night - a full moon has been arranged.
  
 +Next day is mostly walking on back roads with about an hour is uphill scrub bashing thrown in.

 +Most of the walk is on the coastal side of a 2000 ft. range with almost unobstructed views which extend from Cape Banks on the north to Mount Dromedary on the south.
  
 +It is fair/medium test walk standard, mostly on tracks. ​ For further details see leader: Alex Colley.
  
 +=== WALKS REPORT for AUGUST 1956. ===
  
 +The programme for August opened with Yvonne Renwick'​s Field Week-end at Euroka. Beautiful weather brought out 12 members and 3 prospectives and 4 youngsters. Altogether a good week-end.

 +For the last week-end in this report I am rearranging the trip order to give full scope to the Friday night walk. On the Sunday walk Joan Cordell had 5 members, 1 prospective and 1 visitor. She reported that it was a little early for the flowers but all had a good time.   Len Fall had only one offer of a starter and by mutual consent the Saturday trip was called off.

On Sunday morning the party, (still minus leader) steamed up past Bimlow and on arrival at Sheehy.'​s Creek they noticed an immaculately dressed "​gentleman"​ near a Renault. On closer inspection it proved to be the "​leader"​ who had nipped home on Saturday, slept at home, and had taken the opportunity for a pleasant run on Sunday in the car, no doubt to jeer at any walkers who might come by. . However, I am pleased to report that his white-anting was somewhat mitigated by his stowing all 5 bodies and 4 packs into the Renault and driving them home.
