Letter to the Gazette explaining that a headland in Gosford LGA known as Walker Point was named after the writer of the letter, Ronald B Walker whilst he was the sitting member of parliament for the region. The headland is situated at the entrance to the river on the northern bank near Patonga. The name was chosen because Walker was instrumental in obtaining government grants for the construction of the scenic drive from Wagstaff to Avoca following the headlands on the northern side of the Hawkesbury Estuary. Also due to the part Walker played in having the road bridge consructed over the Hawkesbury at Peats Ferry.
