Riparian Walk #5 – Boatholes Creek Ruffy – Pre-event Description

The fifth walk in this series of six walks will start at the Hughes Creek bridge on Boatholes Rd and finish at the Mineral Springs.

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 is a beautiful walk with mostly gentle slopes that meanders down a unique part of the Hughes Creek.

The walk is long (5-6km) and of moderate difficulty, with a few small creek crossings, some rock hopping and a few small but steep inclines and declines. Hiking experience isn’t neccessary, and due to being mostly downhill, an average level of fitness will be required. The walk difficulty may increase drastically if wet weather precedes it.

Walkers will meet at the Hughes Creek bridge on Boatholes Rd at 9am (GPS coordinate -36.992076, 145.500582). From there, walkers will descend down Hughes Creek before being ferried back to the starting point.
