Salisbury Falls, Warby Ranges NP : July 20

In fine conditions with some cloud over the Alps, six club members enjoyed the classic approximate 11km walk from the Salisbury Falls area at the end of Shanley Street into our special Warby Range.

The first section climbs quite rapidly towards the top of Mt Warby with the vegetation obviously rejuvenated by recent rains, and with buds just appearing ahead of the usual wild flower “explosion” which will occur in a few weeks’ time.

Some of the creeks were just running, and the waterfalls were close to making an appearance.

Kangaroos and many bird species were evident as the group enjoyed the always superb Alpine Views track which winds back on the edge of the Range.
