ECHOES OF ROSEVILLE

ROSEVILLE BECKONS

To send us loopy this Sunday we are discovering some more bush areas beginning in Roseville Chase. 

Meet near 15 Normac Street, Roseville, near the access to Roseville Marina and, more importantly, Echo on the Marina cafe(echoonthemarina.com.au)The road is quite narrow with twists and turns but there is parking on the side of the road.

From Normac Street we will cross Boundary Road and skirt Roseville Golf Course before some bush walking on Two Creeks Track by the water under the Roseville Bridge. There will be hills and bush tracks as well as some street walking(!) In the sunshine Echo on the Marina is a wonderful venue for coffee.

Looking forward.....
