Riparian Walk #5 – Hughes Creek, Tarcombe

As we descend into winter, we mark the end of our Riparian Walk series for a while. What better way to finish than with a jaunt down a winding section of the 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 (6km) and of easy to moderate difficulty. There’ll be several creek crossings, so please bring waterproof shoes and dry backup socks. Hiking experience isn’t necessary, but an average level of fitness and mobility will be required.

We’ll meet at the picnic ground near the start of Jeffreys Rd which will serve as our start and end point. From there, we’ll descend down the Hughes Creek before taking a shortcut down the road to the starting point (YAY! no car shuffle).

For anyone interested, an optional excursion upstream to the culturally significant Aboriginal stone carving sight will follow the walk.

Please note, as we’ll be near private property, no dogs or other pets will be allowed.

Time/Date: 8:45am to 1pm, Sunday the 26th of May, 2019

Start/Finish Location: Picnic ground near the start of Jeffreys Rd (GPS Coordinate: -37.001778, 145.332028)
