Sunday, 22nd October. Bowser to Boorhaman

Five people took part in this first time walk by the Warby Range Bushwalkers.

The weather was kind, as it was overcast which made the thirteen kilometre walk enjoyable.

This adventure started near the start of Back Estcourt Road on Three Chain Road/Federation Way. The walk was predominantly on Back Estcourt Road, but in several places, we could walk on the former rail line bench. The Peechelba East railway line was a track branching off of the North-East railway line at Bowser railway station. It was opened on 31 October 1927 and closed on 8 December 1986. The line was built to primarily serve soldier settlers in the area.

We stopped near the Bowser CFA shed for morning tea, and after approximately four hours the crew arrived at the Boorhaman Golf Course, and enjoyed lunch, along with the flies.

It was a pity that the Canola and Wattle flowers had just come to an end, but it was still an enjoyable walk.
