Less Scrub Now
Getting to Collins Bonnet from Myrtle Forest has been a scrubby affair for a number of years, but it has suddenly become a much clearer track. Along with Parks staff, the Wellington Park Bushcare Group cut back the heavy overgrowth for quite a length of the track.
It was a pleasant temperature and a fine day. After walking to the junction of the Collins Cap and Collins Bonnet tracks we did some light pruning to the creek crossing 170 metres up the track where the more significant work began. From there 420 metres was cut back. A further 540 metres remains to the old hut site.
We were surprised to find that someone had quite recently done quite a bit of work trimming the vegetation, but it was just long tip pruning so unfortunately, for those who did it, the effort put in was effectively wasted.
