Got a lift up to the Lilly Pilly Gully Car-park where the track starts to climb gently through stringybark forest and cool moist fern gullies. The weather was perfect. One has to remember that down here the weather can change drastically at a moments notice.

There is a good defined track to follow and we spent a little bit of time doing the circuit of Lilly Pilly Gully along the way. This is a fascinating section of the walk that should not be missed. Continued to climb gently to the summit of Mount Bishop.

There are beautiful 360 degree views from this relatively small 319m summit which looks down over the strange Squeaky Beach below (see the beach actually squeaks!). We retraced our steps back to the track junction and then realised that we had arranged to meet Catherine back at the car-park, so we did a fast walk and trot back and got there just in time!
