Sunday was a beautiful Winter's day and the Pioneer River was at its best, high tide, when our group of about sixty history explorers headed off along the Pioneer Promenade. There were 10 viewing stages in the walk from the Forgan Bridge to Hospital Bridge. The viewing areas under the large umbrellas were comfortable places for the group to relax and listen to the history of Cremorne and the Pioneer Bridges.
The part of the walk that encompassed the mangrove re vegetation area and Catherine Freeman Walk enabled members of the group to stretch their legs and enjoy a more natural setting than the Promenade. At the eighth viewing stage, despite some over enthusiastic identification of floating logs as crocodiles, the legend of the Mackay Monster was put to rest.
The group finished their Pioneer journey at the Fishing Platform( Hospital Bridge) and the Community Gardens. It was a very pleasant way to spend a Sunday morning.
