After getting back into the swing of things in Upton Hill, we now find ourselves taking our final riparian stroll for the year. After a lengthy break due to bat related illness, it’s now time to say goodbye to our 3rd round of the famous riparian walks.

Continuing our exploration of the Seven Creeks, we’ll be exploring the most upstream section to date. Starting in private property, we’ll soon reach the start of the crown frontage. This runs all the way down to Gooram, which was our first ever riparian walk.

Expect a long walk (7.5km/up to 4.5hours) of easy difficulty with blackberrys and multiple creek crossings 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 on the side of the road where the Seven Creeks passes under Watkins Rd. Walkers will need to take care parking on the side of the road, making sure not to obstruct traffic. From there, walkers will enter into private land, and soon transition to the Seven Creeks crown frontage (public land). We’ll cross Ankers Rd and head down to Creek Junction Rd, before a short car shuffle back to the starting point.

Please note, no dogs or other pets are allowed.

If you’d like to assist with the car shuffle, please let us know in your RSVP email.

RSVPs are essential, so please email admin@strathbogieranges.org to register your interest.
