Backyard Blitz Series - Bush to Beach North Beach WA

Sun 30th August 2020 | Marg M

It was great to explore the Star Swamp area, I did not know if even existed and there is so much history in such a small reserve. absolutely loved the slow pace which allowed us to stop and take photos and chat whilst we wandered along the paths without slowing the group down. The lookout was another fantastic secret with sweeping views of the coast. This one gets a big tick from me!
