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.
We’re branching out from previously explore paths to uncharted territory, with this walk being our first exploration of the hidden, but magnificent Mountain Hut Creek. If conditions are right, we may explore the aboriginal cave art nearby.
This walk is long (8km/5hours) and of high difficulty with several creek crossings, steep descents and bush bashing to contend with. 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. The walk route may be shortened to suit weather conditions.
Walkers will meet out the front of 100 Kelvin View School Rd, taking care not to obstruct any gates or access ways. From there, walkers will descend down to the corner of the Mount Wombat/Garden Range nature reserve. Walkers will follow the creek down to the edge of the GA Waterhouse reservoir before diverting to see the aboriginal cave artwork. Then we’ll head to gate at the bottom of the hill on Euroa-Strathbogie Rd. Walkers will then be driven back to their cars at the starting point.
Note: If you’d like to help with the car shuffle, please meet us at the end point at 8:20am.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
