Our riparian walks are back and bigger than ever, with 6 walks covering the best of the bogies as well as some new gems.
The aim of these walks is to become better acquainted with our local waterways, and record some of their standout features along the way.
An all time classic, the Boatholes Creek will kick things off with it’s meandering, grassy banks and dramatic granite gorges.
This walk is long (6.5km) and of moderate to hard difficulty, with some potentially slippery rocks and tricky creek crossing. Hiking experience isn’t necessary, but an average level of fitness and mobility will be required. Difficulty will increase drastically if wet weather precedes it.
We’ll meet at the Hughes Creek bridge on Boatholes Rd at 8:45am (GPS coordinate -36.992076, 145.500582). From there, walkers will descend down Hughes Creek to the mineral springs, before being ferried back to the starting point.
Please note: As we’ll be traversing private property, no dogs or other pets will be allowed.
