Riparian Walk #1 – Strathbogie to Polly McQuinns – Event Description

The famous SRCMN Riparian Walks are back for another year!

To kick things off, the first walk in this series of five will start at Smiths Bridge (just south of the town of Strathbogie) and finish at the beautiful Polly McQuinns.

The aim of these walks is to become better acquainted with our local waterways, and record some of their standout features along the way.

This is a beautiful walk with mostly gentle slopes that meanders down a unique part of the Hughes Creek.

The walk is long (7km) and of easy to moderate difficulty, with a few creek crossings and bush bashing involved. Hiking experience isn’t necessary, but an average level of fitness will be required. The walk difficulty may increase drastically if wet weather precedes it, or if it’s hot on the day.

Walkers will meet at Smiths Bridge at 9am. From there, walkers will descend down the Seven Creeks before being ferried back to the starting point.

Please note, as we’ll be traversing some private property on these walks, no dogs or other pets are allowed.
