Email from Ann Maher  -

Alan and Gay were there. Gay was not too happy. She needed to spend all her time with the baby and missed out on all the activities. Arthur Dearn and Marilyn Sommerville were there also.

It was a very happy weekend in a beautiful place. The ferry-only access from Palm Beach  really gave it character.
I  understand you could also come in those days by a difficult bushwalk. Brian took us for a bushwalk, I remember and we identified Aboriginal carvings along the track. He was multi talented. 
The access may be different nowadays, everything changes.
