Winton Wetlands : December 3

After several club members withdrew due to the “unseasonable” predicted hot day, a small but enthusiastic group ambled along three of the Winton Wetlands area’s designated short walks.

In rapidly warming conditions, we covered the almost three kilometres of the Green’s Hill Track, enjoying fantastic views over the now full lakes, and the accompanying massive bird life, before walking the less than a kilometre long Humphrie’s Hill Track in a slow fashion as “beware of snake” signs were evident!!

The drive into the eastern part of the wetlands was less direct than normal as Boggy Creek Road is closed due to flood damage.

We then visited the Mokoan Hub, for a delightful coffee and cake break, before exploring the one kilometre long indigenous sculpture park (Lotipati Natjan Danak) and the beginning of the Woodland Walk.
