On Wednesday, August 5th, we are going to Yarrawonga, hopefully to see Lake Mulwala at its normal level again. The first walk is in Gorman Park, an area below the weir wall between the river, and the billabong beside the golf links. The area has recently been upgraded as a walking /bicycle area. After this we drive to the Yacht Club to walk to Chinaman’s Island for lunch and another walk. We will leave Benalla at 9.30am. Please ring Vaughan at 5762 1980 beforehand.
Easy Walks are aimed at maintaining fitness by introducing people to bushwalking and giving previous bushwalkers the opportunity to continue bushwalking on shorter, easier and well defined tracks. Walks will
be approximately 5 - 7 kms without a lot of climbing, usually within an hour’s drive of Benalla. Participants will require sturdy shoes & be able to carry a backpack containing snack, lunch, adequate water, water-proof jacket, and personal items. Members are asked to notify walk leaders of
attendance at least 3 days prior to the walk to enable carpooling,travel costs, and other arrangements.
