Meeting place for today’s walk was Wollstonecraft Station. We then walked around Berry Island and across to the Coal Loader for morning tea. After a circuit of Balls Head we walked though Carradah Park and around to Sawmillers Reserve for lunch. After lunch we headed for Milsons Pt Station via MacMahons Pt and Wendy Whiteley's Garden. A great walk with fabulous harbour views and lots of history.
It’s actually an interesting piece of history that Berry Island was part of a grant of land made by Governor Macquarie to Alexander Berry and Edward Wollstonecraft in 1820. Over the years the island became linked to the mainland, first by a stone causeway over the mudflats, and then by a program of reclamation during the 1960s.
Thanks to Geoff and Ursula for your leadership.
