Week Away : 2020

Hi all members, I am thrilled to be preparing the Club’s Mornington Peninsular walks for our week away. Walkers of all abilities will enjoy the spectacular walking trails, views of peaceful bays, wild ocean coastlines, tranquil bush and local history. Being a coastal region, the elevation of most walks is easy to moderate, usually the…

Daylesford Weekend : Sept 2019

On the weekend of Friday Sept 13 to Sunday Sept 15th twenty Warby Walkers booked for a weekend of walks in the Daylesford region. The club’s motto might be fun, fitness and friendship, but it’s more like fantabulous frivolities and foolishness. To the suggestion of what happens on a weekend walk stays on a weekend…

Moonlight Track Walk : August 31

There were 22 walkers on this last day of winter walk, with 18 tackling the full route from Taminick Gap, to Morgans Lookout, and four taking Ridge Track direct to the Lookout.

Greta Bush Retreat, and BBQ : August 17

This excellent event took place in the Greta South Bushland, with the walk commencing from what is known as ‘Dinnings Bush’at Merles Hut. There were 27 walkers, and we enjoyed an easy to medium walk along mainly bush tracks. We walked along a ridge, which had some steep grades, and we saw many kangaroos and…

Horseshoe Lagoon : August 8

Despite the forecast of very nasty weather, six walkers headed out in fine but cold conditions from Apex Park, towards a rarely visited wilderness part of Wangaratta, which is very close to the showgrounds, but on the other side of the Ovens River! This short trip of only about five kilometres, was a combined Warby…

Barry Falls, Eldorado : August 4

There were 27 of us completing this walk to Barry Falls, including a visitor (Leslie’s daughter Amy) and three newcomers; Lou, Kim and Lyn. So it was lovely that you joined us, and we hope that we’ll see you again. The walk was about 9km long, and started and ended on well-maintained bush roads. In…

Week Away : 2020

Hi all members,

I am thrilled to be preparing the Club’s Mornington Peninsular walks for our week away. Walkers of all abilities will enjoy the spectacular walking trails, views of peaceful bays, wild ocean coastlines, tranquil bush and local history. Being a coastal region, the elevation of most walks is easy to moderate, usually the distance of the trail determines the track grading.

The fourteen-kilometre Sorrento Ocean Beach to Bridgewater Bay walk, as well as the Bushrangers Bay to Fingal Beach track are on the walk’s program. Both walks offer spectacular cliff top views of the coastline, rock platforms, small bays and birdlife.

Walkers will also enjoy the hilly terrain around Red Hill and Arthur’s Seat National Park with views of rural properties, majestic old pine trees, wetlands, wildflowers and wildlife. All walkers will have the opportunity to undertake a section, or the entire challenging twenty-six kilometres, Two Bays Walking Track, the longest continuous walking track on the Mornington Peninsular from Dromana on the Port Phillip Bay to Cape Schanck.

A twelve-kilometre circuit track around Port Nepean will be explored. On this circuit, walkers can read about Australia’s military history, a historic quarantine station, and Harold Holt Memorial while enjoying the stunning views of coastal vegetation and bay views of Port Phillip Bay and Bass Strait.
