Riparian Walk #3.2 – Wombat Creek, Strathbogie – Pre-event description

Time & Date: 8:45am – 12:30pm, Saturday the 12th of October
Starting Location: Fergusons Lane, Strathbogie
Length: Forlonge Memorial Road
Difficulty: Moderate
Length: 5km

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.

The first walk in our new riparian walk series was the beautiful mineral springs in Ruffy, so now it’s bogie’s turn to wow walkers with it’s stunning scenery.

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 on the clearing on 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.

RSVPs are essential, so please email us at events@strathbogieranges.org to register your interest.
