Mt Meg Conservation Reserve Number 3 – Dave’s Hill : September 20

On a warm, sunny, clear and windless morning, 11 enthusiastic walkers headed out from Amery Road into a more open section of one of the Mt Meg reserves.

We ambled up Dave’s Hill through acres of gorgeous blue and white flowers.

On the bare rocky summit, we delighted in a 200 degree plus, view across green and glistening yellow (canola) paddocks to the Warby Ranges. We discovered many rock wells created by the local aboriginal people, who would have used this location as a major lookout place.

The group climbed along the lightly wooded granite ridge for 2 kms before dropping off to the west and then followed roo tracks back around the site of Canaan College, to the cars.

Once again, Pat’s cuppa and delicious fresh biscuits were enjoyed as we ate lunch in the shade of trees planted many years ago in the garden of a very early homestead (now in ruins).
