Middle section of the Warby Ranges North to South. Sunday, 9th September

On this local adventure, an impressive number of people (27) took the opportunity to walk the 17kms from Ryan’s Lookout to Taminick Gap, this being the middle section of our ‘Warby Ranges : North to South’.

The dry conditions seem to have prevented a massed blooming of the normally abundant wild flowers, but there were large groups of superb local wattles, and abundant nodding green hoods over the first part of the walk.

We also discovered abundant donkey orchids.

Morning tea was taken at Wenham’s Camp, just before we “climbed” Mt Warby, with its great views, and lunch was enjoyed not far from the big towers near the end of Bailey’s Road.

At Taminick Gap we once again delighted in Pat’s welcome cuppa, and then a brief car shuffle was completed before we headed back to Wangaratta.
