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.

Having parked our cars on the dirt track adjacent to Taminick Gap Road, on the boundary of Baileys Vineyard, we followed the fence line around the Vineyard, with great views to the south and west.

It was a beautifully sunny day, albeit cool to start with, and we were soon discarding outer garments.

Once at Moonlight Track, we began a steep 20 minute climb to the ridgeline, turned right at Ridge Track, and subsequently joined up with the group of four at the Lookout.

A leisurely lunch, with great views (including the snow-capped peaks of Mounts Bogong, Howitt, Buller and Stirling) was enjoyed by all, and then we commenced the return to Taminick Gap.

On the way, we made a short detour to admire the views from Chick Hill (800m each way – total 1.6km) and then had a slow stroll back to the Gap.

There were various GPS devices in use on the day, and the general consensus was that the full walk covered 13.8km.

However, regardless of the distance it was a great day out; many thanks to Jeanette and Michael for organising this event.

The group met at 9.00am at Rotary Park, mileage was $2.50 per person, and the travel, the glorious walk, morning tea and lunch, plus Pat’s cuppa returned us to Wangaratta by 3pm.
