Wilsons Headland Walk







 











Wilsons Headland is another local gem which we had never visited before! Situated between Minnie Water and Wooli on the NSW Mid North Coast, it is relatively remote from large towns. Visiting on a school/work day meant there were very few other people out enjoying this beautiful area. Miss N alerted us to this location as she has spend many days weeding and planting in this section of Yuraygir National Park as part of her current environmental work position. I would love to return soon, yet there are still many other nearby areas which we are yet to explore. Maybe we should make a habit of this as the weather cools down, and it tied in very well with our recent science studies of rocks!

So it is sometimes, he does not know a place that is near. It is wonderful and walk among the plants and stay over the ocean was certainly a great pleasure. I greet the spring Polish.

That's a beautiful area for walking. I like the way they have described the trails so you can choose the most appropriate.

What a beautiful place to be, Karen, and what a bonus to be able to tie it in with schoolwork!

Gorgeous Karen. Where is this? Southern USA?

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Cloudia we live in Australia - this is along the east coast of NSW, a beautiful area.

Thanks for sharing Karen, no idea this one existed!

Erin said...

So loving these posts, think I need Miss N to draw up a list of beaches for us to visit, we really have no idea of any of these fantastic spots

Ouch those bull ants can give a nasty bite. What a beautiful location. I must put it on my bucket list.

Great landscape and surroundings. Even the ant is a beauty seen as insect. Thanks for showing.

Love all the pictures but being a geologist I really like the ones with the bedding in the rocks!

Rod said...

Hi Karen,

Yes, those are beds of sedimentary rock that has been under a significant amount of pressure and that has bent them too. They are rocks typically formed deep under water in marine conditions. They have been scraped off the sea bed and squashed onto the Australian continent.

Off the top of my head I think they are called the Coffs Harbour Beds... or Coramba Beds... I've forgotten... it has been too long since I've been down that part of the coast.

I should also add that I supervise a team of Bush Regenerators in the Lismore area. I'm about to take a redundancy and the team has taken a big hit with some restructures but there is a good chance that there will be 2 permanent full-time bush regeneration positions being advertised in the next couple of months. I don't know whether Miss N wants to relocate to the Lismore area but if she is chasing work she might want to apply for a position there?

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Thank you Rod, you have answered my questions and satisfied my geology curiosities well. :)

It is no wonder it is a local gem; beautiful place indeed.

It seems like I can take deep breath and smell the breeze through your photos. They are so sincere!

What a fabulous place to visit! I have added it to my list when I am cleared to do some walking again (I have been unable to walk or drive for a few weeks now).
