Ovens River, Wangaratta. March 16

Seven walkers left early from near the Mullinmurr Project area (end of Phillipson Street) for a six kilometre easy, and delightful, walk on the banks of our special Ovens River (Torryong = Pangerang name).

Trip Leader, Andy, was able to point out the rapidly regenerating native plants, as weeds are being removed by Galen College students, and the Wangaratta Urban Landcare/RCOW.

With the day heating up quickly, the group decided to stop at Apex Park, where Pat’s box of cuppa tea, and fresh biscuits, were enjoyed once again!!


Monday, 27th March. Dinner and AGM at the Vine Hotel.

Glenda Hall was re – elected as club president, and the committee is unchanged after a very successful year. Two excellent speakers from Parks Victoria discussed the proposed new “super” Falls Creek to Hotham track, and answered many (often tricky) questions about PV policy.
