    Great photo.

    With scenes like that I still can't believe I haven't walked down there - must do this year.
    BTW, the weather is always like that isn't it? :nerd:

    Nah, go back a page - Traveller Range, not far away, but that was my initial thought. Those pools in the W of J are like prehistoric zen gardens with the rocks and conifers. A fair bit of Walking w Dinosaurs had the W of J as the backdrop.

    not specific enough sidetrack, just 'cos you can read the filename. Nadgee covers 20+ km of coastline. I know the place reasonably well but there is a few sites that could fit. Probably Newton's Sea Caves though.

    Thanks guys (I didn't think of file name). Graeme is right Nadgee has a coastline of about 30 Km. Graeme is pretty specific by saying the Newtons sea caves (sometimes during the year you don't need to do a rock climb to get in it can be a cruisey walk on sand into the entrance)

    I haven't done the walk through for a while - but booked it today for March. Last time was one of those "a real adventure is never fun at the time" things after we made the impromtu decision to go aroung the inland side of Lake Barracouta from Howe Hill - swamps with thickets of saw-edged cane; ending up wading around the edge in the lake then a pack swim to get back to the beach , arriving a day late in Mallacoota. Much more memorable than just walking through!

    Graeme: It's one of the best beach walks in Eastern Australia. A problem at the moment could be a lack of water (Mallacoota has just had over 50mm - the first REAL rain for several months). Let me know closer to the day and I can fill you in where water should be found.
    Meanwhile, here's another:

    thanks Legend - I have a pretty good handle on the water situation in Nadgee from previous walks, including some fairly obscure soaks. Recent first hand info would always be useful though if available.

    Can someone post a photo of the Walls just so I can get it out of my system and move on to a happy place.
