Albany Advertiser (Newspaper) - December 12, 1932, Albany, Western AustraliaNational Library of Australia Torbay hike Deu Gotful Outing. But Small attendance. J the attendance at last efunday1 hike to Torbay Inlet must have been a grievous disappointment to the railway department for it was a below expectations. However Thos who did go had a splendid Outing Al beit most of them were rather severely sunburned. The glorious Beach at the bar was certainly Strong incentive to Sun basking an it was Little wonder that some o the party overdid it. The special hikers train left Al Bany at 10.15 . On sunday Anc connected with the express at Al Leker. Here a number of hikers from it. Barker joined the party. Tor Bay was reached about 11.30 Anc bags were quickly loaded in a Motoi truck for transport to the Inlet while the hikers set out across the coastal Plain to the Ocean. The track Fol Lowed was a horse pad winding in serpentine fashion through the sparse scrub and providing fairly easy go ing throughout. The fact that the track was so narrow caused the hike to string out in a Long single file stretching Back for a Long distance Over the Plain. By now the party had assumed More respectable pro portions by the addition of a num Ber of Torbay residents. One or two streams which crossed the route added a spice of excitement particularly to the less Active hikers who found slight difficulty in fording them about three quarters of an hour s to Alk big brought the party to the shores of the Inlet opposite the floodgates where a Grove of Pepper mint Trees offered Welcome Shade for a picnic lunch. An ample Supply of boiling water was available and with appetites whetted by their ram ble hikers lost no time in setting bout their meal. Milk was also provided free to hikers several Large buckets full being provided by arrangement with local Farmers. Lunch Over most of the party Don bed bathers and set out to explore the Inlet. The scenery is very at Tractive with the Lake like expanse of water lapping the foot of bold Hills on the Side and with the flood Gates reminder of a govern ment Enterprise that failed bridging the Inlet. These Gates were erected in an Effort to control the Waters by preventing the ingress of sea water thus keeping the fresh water of the Inlet uncontaminated. The action was intended to be by the action of tides the Gates automatically closing against the sea water As the tide Rose and opening to permit the escape of the Lake water at Low tide. A Concrete Wall bars the Inlet at Low water level and the Gates Are 1 winged to the Wood superstructure above. Apparently the scheme was not successful and the Gates Nowa Days Are wired open while a great Gap in the Centre roughly bridged with a few planks serves As a Monu ment to some disgusted settler who Rumour says made a determined at tempt to Burn the Structure Down on sunday the water was at a height of about two feet six inches Over the ill and grave difficulty faces the settlers on the swamp lands near the j Inlet and the Grasmere swamps As their summer lands Are inundated j while a Sand bar across the Entrance ? of the Inlet prevents the water from getting away to the sea. A Cut has been made through the bar almost the sea and the flood Waters will be released As soon As the conditions re favourable that is when the tide is Low and the wind off Shore. There is Fine swimming to be had Between the flood Gates and the bar the water serving off gradually from the shallows to about 15 feet deep. The shark menace is non existent in these enclosed Waters and it decidedly enjoyable to splash about with out any fear of Ocean monsters. Beyond the bar there were completely 1 different conditions with a Good surf dreaming on a Virag Dean. A outgo several local residents issued a warn ing1 against undertow a number of swimmers decided that it was Worth taking a risk and they enjoyed some excellent surfing.
