This is my section 7 - from Westleigh to Galston Gorge, walking through the Berowra Valley Regional Park.

Spotted Sun Orchid Thelymitra ixioides

I continued my walk on a glorious spring day! Well, it was more like summer! It was a hot 25°C. Most of this walk was through rocky sandstone gorge country, with open eucalypt forest. Many acacias and heath shrubs were flowering. Hundreds of pink wax flowers were blooming, creating a soft pink pathway all along the tracks.

There was a lot of bird life; I saw kookaburras, fly-catchers, silver-eyes, ducks, sulfur-crested cockatoos, brown cuckoo doves, a bush turkey and three beautiful black cockatoos.

Two goannas crossed my path, one I came upon as I walking along a rock shelf so she didn't hear me, I was able to get very close before she sprinted off into the bush. I was able to see the markings of white and yellow.

At the end of the walk, I stopped at the Galston Gorge rest area, the rooster that has taken up residence there was proudly strutting around. He has some company now; a lovely bush turkey hen who he bosses around.
