    7 walked. 6 met at the Shed by 7.30AM, then drove in 2 cars to park in the central bus interchange car park behind junction of Morrisset & Collett Sts, where we met one more.

    We then walked from Collett St to Oaks Estate to see the Osage Orange Trees, old River Crossing sites, Molonglo-Qbn Rivers jn, the rail bridge over the river, the Qbn Cemetery, then along Qbn River to the historic 1938 Suspension Bridge. We then returned along the river bank and had Coffee & Milk Shakes at the Millhouse historic café.
