We have previously explored the amazing Botanic Gardens, but on this walk, with the new suspension bridge, we walk from Victoria Lake to the Gardens and return,a total of approx 8km. BYO picnic lunch--we will stop at the Gardens after walking along the Goulburn and Broken rivers, with plenty of shorter walks to explore in the gardens including the beautiful Honeysuckle Rise lookout.
We will leave the Seniors’ carpark, Fawkner Dve, by 9am. Please confirm with Glen by Monday 30th May on 0431201077, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember to bring lunch, snacks, a drink and comfortable shoes.
Car sharing for all walks is usually available, with a small contribution.
Wednesday 6th July: Murchison
This walk will begin with a drive to Murchison and an exploration of Riverbank Gardens and Boardwalk. We will then follow the trail along the Goulburn River before taking another track that will lead us to the water’s edge. We will return the same way, which will result in a walk of 4km. Lunch will be at the Murchison bakery. For those wishing to continue walking a further 2km we will meander to the historic cemetery to visit the Italian Ossario, noted for its historic and aesthetic significance.
Meet in the carpark at 9.30 to leave at 9.45am. Please confirm with Glen as above.
