Blessed with the sunshine on this Easter Sunday, we went down to Jerusalem Bay through the magnificent changing landscape of a hanging swamp full of flowering tee trees, through the wet sclerophyll with pink croweas and nearly flowering darwinias. Then the track descends through rain forest with high Turpentine and coachwood trees. Reaching the “nose” of Jerusalem Bay we were greeted with a pair of sea eagles circling above (one can be seen in this photo just above the parked boats). As we watched a wedge tailed eagle plummeted from on high separating the pair of sea eagles: drama in the skies! It was a wonderful walk both there and back.
I have never been able to find out how the bay got the name Jerusalem- so if anyone has the history I would love to know.
