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…

It was gratifying to look back over the last year of activity -an easy task thanks to the wonderful work of our Webmaster, Chris- to see how active and adventurous we have been as a Club.

Stanley Reserve to Magic Forest, and Fletchers Dam : April 23

This walk took place on a superb autumn day, and was ideal for the 10 walkers to complete the loop from Stanley to the Magic Forest, and return. The Magic Forest is a hidden group of mature Sequoias, with an enchanted feel, and is located to the north of Stanley. After a break at the…

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 to the Clarks Corner picnic area, west of Stanley. The walk began here, taking Rooneys Track and using forestry roads and several foot tracks for an eight kilometre loop.

Steep in parts, the forest was delightful after a few days of rain, and we were greeted with sun streaming through the foliage. A highlight of this walk was the many different fungi, probably a result of a wet summer.

After Pat’s usual lovely cuppa, we called in at Murmungee Lookout so as to enjoy the great valley view from here.
