Gapsted Loop : February 20

Today’s walk was an 8km loop through Stanley State Forest, near Gapsted Winery. There were 20 of us, with three newcomers, and two dogs (Tobey and Ted) as we set off at 9am on the initial section of the walk, along the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail. We then headed off to the right, taking…

Water in Beechworth : February 12

Despite showers occurring as we drove up to Beechworth, seven keen walkers headed off for a 5-6km pleasant amble, which aimed to be always within a few metres of water. Remarkably the rain ceased just as we parked beside Lake Sambell, and parkas were not needed! The walk started by trudging up the Silver Creek…

Yackandandah Escarpment : February 7

The Yackandandah Escarpment extends southwards from Yackandanah township, and is renowned for its beautiful open forest, and great views. We had a group of 20 walkers for this adventure, as well as a lovely sunny day, with some high-level cloud. The walkers based in Wangaratta met at Rotary Park at 8.30am, organised the car pooling,…

Stypandra Track, Warby Ranges : January 31

This route was pioneered by Karen Davis, and is a very interesting, and enjoyable, walk. The 19 participants met at Rotary Park at 7.30am, organised car pooling, then headed off to Loggers Lane. Having dropped off all of our gear, we took a shuttle car to the picnic area at Jubilee (Briens) Falls, and we…

Mount Buffalo : Sunday, January 10

This was our first walk of the New Year, and was to have been at Beechworth (Lake Sambell to Lake Kerferd) but that was cancelled due to a continued track closure (since the winter of 2020) by Parks Victoria. This was caused by safety concerns for the grill structures that protect the various mine shaft…

Mount Killawarra : December 19

This was a 12km loop through the beautiful bushland at the northern tip of the Warby Ranges, and was a new venue for the club. The top temperature predicted was 27c, and we had an interesting blue sky, with a nice cooling breeze. The route was immaculately researched, by Jeanette and Michael, during the springtime,…
