Beautiful day today, so it was a walk up my favourite mountain.
Spotted this Black shouldered kite just before the top, a first time seeing one on the mount for me

It has been a beautiful day and the flag looks fabulous. Great work Arkie and Greg.

It did look good blowing in the breeze

Looks great. It belongs there.

Awesome

Hi all- the last of the pines in the old Sugarloaf quarry are coming down today by qualified arborists. For your safety, please avoid using any trails on Sugarloaf today (loop track and going up the summit). Cheers! ... See MoreSee Less

Informative , easy to read and look very attractive. Well done everyone. And, thank you.

Great job by everyone involved in this fantastic project 👍

Thanks to the great work done by the students the Management Committee will be able to collect some great info about the use of our fantastic walk trail usage.

4 PEAKS CHALLENGE REPORT ... what a fabulous day was had by all 43 signed up participants .. plus a few extra .. who met at the base of Mt Leura at 9.45am for what will become an annual event for the Friends of Mt Leura. We would like to thanks all those who participated whether they conquered all four peaks or just the ones they had the time or energy to conquer. Some came long distances .... some came training for the Kokoda Track .... for many it was their first visit to at least one of our chosen peaks.
The sun eventually came out early afternoon but it was perfect walking weather all day.
Finally our thanks to Val and Chris Lang for opening up Mt Elephant early for us.
I have included a few photos from the day.
Graham Arkinstall on behalf of the organising team ... thanks Fran, John, Becky and Belinda

Our group completed all four mounts, finishing up at Mount Elephant. Thanks for putting it on, we all had a fantastic day and I ticked of a long time goal and learnt something too.

Many thanks to those who organised the event.

Yes a great day ! Well done to all the organizers !

Thanks to all involved. It was a great day. I know I will feel it tomorrow.

Fantastic event idea, was sorry to miss this one but will be there next year!

I did Leura & Sugar Loaf yesterday looking for birdies as usual, I bet there were none in sight today lol

It was a great day!

Hope you had fun.

Sally.. if I’m about next year, we’d better pencil this on the calendar 😉

Thank-you to all involved. Ella Howard Sam Darren Fox
