OPINION: Flannels in bloom in Hawks Nest News Of The Area Opinion by News Of The Area - Modern Media - October 27, 2020 DEAR News Of The Area, What a wonderful place we live in. The Flannel flowers growing all along Myall Road Hawks Nest have been spectacular this year. These flowers originally covered the whole of Hawks Nest and people from Sydney would come here to pick them. Hopefully we leave some of the area for these to keep flourishing for many years to come . Regards, Elsa Jones.
