Event Report: The third time Ive walked this track and its really wonderful walk at this time of the year. The party of 8 set out about 9-30 and although a short delay ensued as some walkers followed Danny's loop we made good progress stopping lots for photos and morning tea. I recall walking here in 2011 with Hans Kaspers and 2018 - all at this time of the year. Due to the very dry conditions floral display was not quite as dramatic as in previous years but delightful none the less.
We lunched on the heavily dissected creek that we descended to - continued on to the park bench and then retraced our steps.
walkers morning tea breakAbout 7 hours all up and then a 1 hour trip back to Albury.
