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,…

Christmas Gathering : December 11

Cecily, and her hard working friends, had set everything up for us, and the night went very smoothly. As mentioned in the latest newsletter, there was…

Skeleton Hill : December 10

As usual, we met at Rotary Park, and then travelled in convoy to the start, the junction of Skeleton Hill Track and Lancashire Gap Road. The…

MOUNT BUFFALO PLATEAU : December 6

On Sunday December 6th, it was a glorious sunny 25 degrees, accompanied by a gentle breeze, and the makings of a great day for bushwalking. Unfortunately, this was happening somewhere else on the planet, and not at Mount Buffalo. Instead, sixteen foolhardy walkers braved the elements to walk the Mount Buffalo Plateau, taking in Mt…

He pioneered much of what we now call Gippsland, and his memoirs show that, like many migrants, he had a great love for his adopted country. In 1988 a 210km long distance walking track was created in honour of McMillan’s adventures. This…
