take the side road going off on the right, past the stone toilet block, and
meet  at the open-sided pavilion. Even in October the Royal National Park
can be quite cold after dark  so please have the children come in strong
shoes and with a warm jacket.  If possible bring a  torch for everyone, and
binoculars. Please bring a picnic dinner (already cooked) as we will not  be
lighting fires. We will finish the walk with a brief chat about what we have
seen followed by  the usual handouts and goodies to eat, and we aim to be
all finished by 8.30 pm. Being out in the  bush at night is a fascinating
experience. If the weather is bad, phone between 1-1.30 pm
