IMG_0361The Ruffy Weekend Walkers were recently very privileged to be taken on walk down the little known  Baronga Creek , a tributary of the Creightons Creek by Barry, Ann and Natalie.

We were shown  some amazingly tall tree ferns estimated to be nearly  10 metres tall.( Neil is standing beside one in the photograph to give an idea of the scale).These tree ferns grow at a rate of about 3 metres  every one hundred years. So if you do the maths these plants were growing way before Captain Cook set out to discover Australia , Canada was still a French Colony and Handel was at  the top of the music charts .
