After being received by Cr Col Mitchell, Mayor of Wollondilly Shire Council and Phil Coster of the Rotary Club Picton, the walkers were then taken on a jaunt in a 1927 vintage car to see Picton's Botanic Garden.

Sierra Classen has written a diary and here is an extract of some of her thoughts about the end of the walk...

It took us much longer to leave today. Mooching along was exactly what we seemed to be doing. Kalang, Milo, Alex, and I all slept in and around the gum leaf. I woke up relatively early, made a cup of tea and went to Barrallier’s Lookout in front of the beautiful little chapel that Bob Anderson designed. I spent about an hour and a half there writing reflections about the walk and drawing the scenery. A female lyrebird and numerous small finches came to see what I was doing. I watched as the mountain haze cleared and the pristine forested slopes were doused in the sun of a dauntingly hot day.
