Wednesday, 8th February. Beechworth Waters Walk

For this interesting walk 13 enthusiastic starters met at the Lake Sambell bbq area just after 9am, with a warm to hot day predicted.

We ambled along Silver Creek on the right bank for about a kilometre towards the Silver Creek Caravan Park, before heading back on the left bank, and then skirting the Lake Sambell Caravan Park back down to the lakeside.

The eastern side of the lake has suffered some damage during the recent big rains, but we managed to navigate around the taped off steep sections to emerge into the Chinese Gardens. Then we followed the track alongside Silver Creek, down to the bridge at the start of the gorge, before walking the right bank of the creek back to Camp Street, and then the west side of the lake to where we had parked our cars.

After seven kilometres of varied walking, we once again enjoyed Pat’s now famous cuppa with fresh biscuits, and even an olive flavoured dip!!
