Riparian Walk #2 – Wombat Creek – Pre event description

Come along to our 2nd walk in this series of famous SRCMN Riparian Walks.

After our gentle stroll down to Polly McQuinns last time, this walk steps it up a notch, traversing from the Fergusons Lane down to Forlonge Memorial Road.

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 walk is long (5km/3.5hours) and of moderate difficulty with several creek crossings and a lot of rock hopping. Hiking experience isn’t necessary, but an average level of fitness and mobility will be required. The walk difficulty will increase drastically if wet weather precedes it, or if it’s hot on the day.

Walkers will meet down Fergusons Lane. From there, walkers will descend down Wombat Creek, following it to Forlonge Memorial Road. Walkers will then be driven back to their cars at the starting point.

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