The first Adventure in Nature of 2023 is the same as our very first Riparian Walk back in 2018. This is one of the all time great walks of the Shire of Strathbogie, with stunning granite gorges, thick bush and meandering creeklines to keep walkers entertained.

The walk will start at the Polly McQuinns Weir on Galls Gap Rd, with walkers making their way down the Sevens Creek to Gooram falls (both iconic local swimming spots). From there, a rather lengthy car shuffle will ferry travellers back up the hill to their cars at the weir.

Despite being all downhill, this is one of the more difficult walks you’ll encounter with us. With steep, slippery scrambles down rock faces, boulder hopping, long grass and multiple creek crossings, walkers will be presented multiple challenges to overcome. The rewards are well worth it, but please consider whether this walk is right for you, as there’s no phone reception or easy ways out once we get going.

Make sure you’ve had your hat and hiking boots serviced by a licensed professional, and that you bring plenty of water and food.

Please note that no pets are allowed on the walks. As always, if the weather is looking hostile on the day, the date may be moved.

If you’d like to help out with the car shuffle, please just let us know in your RSVP.

RSVPs are essential, so please email us at
