Kama Nature Reserve

Today another walk close to home: Kama Nature Reserve off William Hovell Drive. The trail winds down to the Molonglo River through regenerating eucalypt woodland. Around the many older trees like the one above younger trees in all stages of growth abound. Sprays of leaves have shot from the ground following the generous drought-breaking rains this year.

Cockatoos sky-larked above us. Crimson and Eastern Rosellas skimmed from tree to tree. Some smaller birds, perhaps Striated Thornbills, flitted through the shrubs. A few kangaroos pricked their ears as we tripped down to the river.

We picnicked above the river sprawled on rocks and meagre winter grasses. Downstream the river cut through some pretty impressive cliffs. Opposite cattle grazed on bare paddocks in stark contrast to the reserve we’d walked through.

While researching this walk I stumbled on Tim Savage’s blog Australian Hiker. I listen to his podcast intermittently and had followed his hike on the Bibbulum trail in 2018 with great interest. Unfortunately, he tackled this trail in summer, when it was hot and smoke from nearby bush fires choked the air. He was not very enthusiastic about Kama. We disagree with him on this trail. We enjoyed the woodland, birds and river very much on the sunny but cool day we walked through it.
