Riparian Walk #3 – Hughes Creek Tarcombe – Pre event description

Come along to our 3rd walk in this series of famous SRCMN Riparian Walks.

After a few bogie based walks, it’s now time to revisit the stunning Hughes Creek.

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 (5.5km/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. Difficulty will increase drastically if wet weather precedes it, or if it’s hot on the day.

Walkers will meet down at the Ruffy CFA shed before driving out to the starting point at Donovan Rd. From there, walkers will descend down the Hughes Creek, following it to Ponkeen Creek Rd. 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.

Time/Date: 8:45am to 1pm, Sunday the 31st of March, 2019

Meeting Location: Strathbogie CFA Shed – 1 Nolans Rd, Ruffy VIC 3666

Finishing Location: Ponkeen Creek Rd

Length: 5.5km
