Loggers Lane to Wenhams, and return : April 18

The starting point for today’s adventure was Ryans Lookout, near the corner of Wangandery Road and Gerritts Road, and the distance to be covered was about 12 kilometres. The day provided perfect blue sky autumn ambience, with a top temperature of about 22C.

Having met at Rotary Park at 8.30am, we set off walking at about 9am, and had morning tea at the junction of Loggers Lane and Stypandra Track, about 2.5km from the start.

We then continued towards Taylors Track, and on the way we enjoyed nice views of the Ovens River Flood Plain, and admired the many colonies of grass-trees.

Moving on, we turned north at an un-named single-file track that provides a very scenic loop around to Taylors Track.

In this section we enjoyed some nice rocky scenery, and some more views (including Wangaratta, and the distant high country).

We then made a gradual descent to Wenhams Camp, where an early (11.30am) lunch was enjoyed sat at the picnic tables.

After our leisurely lunch, we started the journey back to the start, taking a myriad number of single-file tracks to the north.

These tracks took us through some amazing stands of spur-wing wattles, and grass-trees, and eventually back to our vehicles. This completed a five hour journey. Our great day was completed by the traditional hot drink and biscuits organised by Pat.

The walk is graded as moderate, and many bushwalkers rate it as the best in the Warby Ranges.

Wildlife included some prosperous looking kangaroos, and plenty of noisy kookaburras and choughs.
