Exploration walk from Killawarra to Peechelba : September 15

Fifteen risk taking hikers walked carefully along the often difficult eight kilometres from the edge of the Killawarra Forest to Peechelba, mainly along the rarely visited and narrow Irishtown Creek “corridor”.

This was a new walk, and a journey which connected two parts of the Warby Ovens National Park (Killawarra, which was part of the Warby-Ovens State Park before 2010, and the Ovens River) for possibly the first time ever!!

We managed to amble mostly beside the creek where no track existed and experienced an “interesting” hazard of exceptionally long, wet grass hiding old fencing wire and small logs/red gum branches!!

After touching the flooded Ovens in Peechelba, we drove back into the Killawarra Camp and gathered around a campfire for lunch, and a celebration to mark the Spring Equinox!
