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.
Bald Hill Creek is completely within private property, making this walk a great opportunity to see a part of the ranges that is normally hard to access. A side trip to the “Kelly Caves” is also on the cards, weather permitting.
Expect a moderately long walk (7km/4.5hours) of easy to moderate difficulty with a short burst of steep ascent/descent 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 at the front gate at 533 Tames Rd, taking care not to obstruct the gate. From there, walkers will descend down to the start of Bald Hill Creek. Walkers will follow the creek, make a diversion to the Kelly Caves, then descend back down to Ankers 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, no dogs or other pets are allowed.
RSVPs are essential, so please email us at email@example.com to register your interest.
