Hopefully the leaches will be gone. Fosters Flat, just off McKell Avenue, contains archaeological remains of a sawmill operating in the early twentieth century, including the sawmill boiler. This sawmill was operated by James Foster of Waterfall around 1903. Beside the boiler are the remains of a timber-lined pit for the circular saw blade and there is no doubt other structure in the nearby bush. This area still abounds in durable hardwoods, turpentines (Syncarpia glomulifera) and blackbutts (Eucalyptus pilularis), and these quality hardwoods would have been logged extensively with the surrounding woodland containing evidence of this extensive logging. This sawmill was still operating in 1922, providing sawn lumber for the Metropolitan Coal Company before being closed by public pressure. The Scientists Hut (also known as the Zoologist Hut) was built on the sawmill site in 1925 and used by the Royal Zoologists Society to study the habits of birds, notably the satin bower bird. Some members may have already done this walk in 2023. This excursion will be done in conjunction with Sutherland Shire Historical Society. Possible leaches, trip hazards.
