Tawonga Gap to Young’s Gap. Saturday, 28th July

This walk was attended by nine trekkers, including three visitors joining us for the day.

Starting at Tawonga Gap, the group were delighted by the outstanding panorama over the Kiewa Valley, and our special mountains.

This road linking the Kiewa and Ovens Valleys was built in 1895-6 by contractors using pick and shovel labour, and their wheelbarrows; it was a struggle, but the project was completed on time.

Setting off, the views only improved along the walk as we gained elevation.

Snow was in abundance at Mt Bogong, and the surrounding high country, while patches of snow could be clearly seen on Mt Buffalo.

We enjoyed lunch at Flat Rock, and the walk was then completed in good time.

The usual much appreciated welcome cuppa was enjoyed at the end of a hard, but enjoyable, 19km walk.
