Mount Porepunkah : June 25

Mount Porepunkah is just to the north of Bright, and it was overcast and chilly to start with on our way to the start, but the weather held, and there was no rain to spoil the day. There were 10 participants on the walk, with five walkers travelling from Wangaratta and Beechworth, and meeting up…

Warby Heritage Trail : June 2

The Warby Falls Heritage Trail was created several years ago, and aims to display the farming life of Ben Warby’s family, early settlers of the Wangaratta area. The Heritage Trail loops in and out of the range country behind Booths Winery, and provides an enjoyable 7.5km walk. Nine enthusiastic walkers (including three “newies”) headed off…

STRATHBOGIE SURPRISE #3

On Sunday May 29th, ten of the finest Warby Range Bushwalking Club members participated in my Strathbogie State Forest Surprise #3. Would this walk live up to the previous two?

Stanley Forest : May 15th

The original venues for this event were to be Flagstaff Hills for a hard walk, and Stanley Forest for a medium walk; however, due to days of rain this week, and illness striking some walkers, it was decided to only do the Stanley Forest walk. We met in Beechworth, and travelled via Lady Newton Drive…

Loggers Lane to Wenhams, and return : May 10

The day provided mostly blue skies, albeit a bit cloudy at times. Having met at Rotary Park at 9am, the nine of us (including Elaine, a welcome visitor) set…
