Beechworth Bush Circuit : October 10

This six kilometre walk made a loop around the Beechworth Historic Park area, just to the north and north-west of the township.

The eleven walkers in the group set off from Gorge Road, then took Robinsons Track to pick up Makakoff Road.

From here we tackled the hillside that leads to the old Tannery, a landmark building, but no longer in use (operations ceased in 1961).

We then strolled along a fire track, down to Ponds Track, and then to the cascades on Spring Creek, and back to the starting point.

Details of the route taken on this walk (as well as many other great options) can be found on the Parks Victoria PDF of the area; see the link below.

Karen, 0409 215 286

An easy to medium circular walk of approx 10 to 12kms on forest tracks, and some foot tracks recently constructed by the Friends of the Park.

The walk takes in the historic areas of Bartley’s Block – site of former brewery, and featuring a seasonal watercourse, and several dams attracting wildlife.

The route provides views over the surrounding plains from high spots on Bartley’s Track, and Stringy Bark Track, before reaching Magenta Mine (this area is well worth exploring) before turning west and returning to the Block.

Wildflowers and birds abound in Spring.

If time permits, a visit to Chiltern Township, where the Annual Stringy Bark Festival is being held that day
