Lyrebird Dell

Continuing along the path from Gordon Falls picnic area Lyrebird Dell is reached. Here there is large cliff overhang which today is grassy spot with picnic tables but has a history of aboriginal occupation from 14,000 years ago. I took a rest here before retracing my steps.

Words to walk with:
From Bora Ring by Judith Wright one of Australia's best loved poets.
“The hunter is gone: the spear
is splintered underground; the painted bodies
a dream the world breathed sleeping and forgot.
The nomad feet are still.”
