It’s been a few months since we went for a bush walk. We have been enjoying the beach and coastal paths during the summer months.

The shade of the bush called us on a still hot day recently, when there was no cooling breeze off the water. A walk on Mount Wellington from Fern Tree to Spring Falls sounded appealing.

Fern Tree is well named with an abundance of tree ferns in the area. We chose the steeper path and walked a longer circular route to the waterfalls.

There was no sign of water in the gullies or below the bridges that we navigated.

At a junction of bush tracks we saw this memorial. A little further on, this marker provided more information about the 1903 race.

The waterfalls were well worth the effort even after a long dry spring and summer. We must revisit after some winter rains.
