Event Report: We parked the car and started walking from Magenta Mine. After looking around the mine site we walked along the Wallaby Track at the junction with Stringybark Track we turned right and followed this to the high point then took a track to the right down to Green Hills Rd. Then it was up Slaughteryard Track I had forgotten that this was a climb UP. Stopped for a snack before turning onto Turquoise and Chandlers Tracks to the Indigo Goldfields Cemetery where we had a wonder around, very little sign remains of the Cemetery. Then back to the car via Stringybark Track and Wallaby Track.
The forest was looking very fresh in its winter glory. A lovely winters walk.
We finished at the Chiltern Bakery.
