Mount Barambogie, July 2

We had a very frosty start to Sunday before our walk to Mount Barambogie, but 22 participants braved the cold, and came out for a walk with gloves, scarves, beanies and thermals (one has to stay warm).

Barambogie is to the east of Chiltern, and we completed a loop walk of about 11km, starting out from the Water Trust Road/Bear Track intersection.

From here, we walked to a bush track south of Mount Barambogie Road, where we enjoyed morning tea.

We then followed the bush track around to Mount Barambogie Road, which was close to the newly remade, and extended, road to the new fire tower at the top of Barambogie.

After a short steep climb up the Mount, we had lunch at the top, and climbed the rocks for a better view.

The tower (unfortunately) is off limits to climb for views, and I’m sure they would be fantastic.

After lunch, it was into the bush to find PX Track, and then onto Bear Track to continue back to the cars.

Afternoon tea included a home made cake from our new member Greta (competition for Pats cookies).

Greta was also our eagle-eyed wildlife spotter for the day, having pointed out a koala and a wedge tailed eagle along our walk.

Enroute to the walk we had also come across a mob of kangaroos, and a fox.
