Stanley State Forest area : January 18

There were 15 of us on this walk on Saturday, 18 January. The plan had been to do a walk on the Mount Buffalo plateau (Mount McLeod), but due to the fires the national park was closed, so rather than cancel the walk altogether a different venue was organised. We met in Wangaratta at 7.30,…

Hot News . . .

Melbourne Cup Caper : Kaluna Island

Onto Kaluna Island, and the field was already strung out; all gathered to admire the huge red gums that dominated this…

Gapsted Winery : November 24

On a sunny and warm Sunday on November 24th twenty-seven Warby Range Bushwalkers joined for the walk commencing and finishing at Gapsted Winery. It was not surprising to have such a decent turnout, as the walkers have established themselves as connoisseurs of all things white and red, particularly when in liquid form. Today’s walk had…
