Eildon Torbreck Weekend : March 19 and 20

On the Saturday morning, ten keen walkers joined up to walk from the lakeside campground at Devil Cove via the Candlebark Nature Loop, and the Auriferous Spur – Jimmy Spur Circuit. Candlebark Nature Loop was pretty, with luscious ferns and mining history, but before the real hard work began two members left to do their…

The Big Walk : Mount Buffalo, March 6

For this high country adventure, we set off on Sunday morning from Wangaratta, at about 7.30 am, stopped in Myrtleford to pick up a few more walkers, and then drove up to Mount Buffalo National Park. The itinerary for the day had three different walks; all included sections of the “Big Walk”, and to organise…

Frost’s Crossing, Killawarra : February 25

Nine walkers, including one newie, completed the now classic 8km amble along the Ovens River flood plain, and beside the now world status Lower Ovens River (following the 2021 listing of the National Park by the IUCN). We followed the normal vehicle tracks on flat, but slightly slippery (after overnight rain), ground, starting at the…

Alpine Views Walk : February 20

The predicted weather for today was mostly sunny, with a predicted top of about 32C, so the nine of us met at the start of the walk (at 8am), so as to make it an early finish, and avoid the heat of the day. The distance planned for walk was about 12km, and heading up…

Falls Creek : February 11, 12 and 13

The club’s annual visit to Falls Creek was very successful, and we enjoyed three days of walking in, and around, the high country. Friday’s walk (led by Chris) was to Mount Jaithmathang, and having gathered at the Pretty Valley camping area we set off for Tawonga Huts in quite foggy conditions. By the time we…

Reform Hill, Myrtleford : Saturday, 5th February

A warm, sunny and still morning was ideal for the 17 walkers who assembled at the base of Reform Hill for an easy walk. The low humidity experienced was in stark contrast to conditions of the previous few days, and a steady climb, with great views of the Ovens Valley and Mount Buffalo, brought us…
