With the lifting of some of the COVID-19 restrictions, walks will recommence on Wednesday, 7 October 2020 whilst adhering to the appropriate COVID-19 protocols.
We will walk along part of the changing landscape of The Friends Track, passing by spectacular spring wildflowers; a stand of iconic Grass Trees (Xanthorrhoea) and through forested granite hills. This track is undulating; rocky in parts and could be wet; therefore, sturdy footwear and walking poles/stick (for some members) would be appropriate. Distance 5 - 6 kms, slow walking at times as there is a lot to see. Currently, COVID-Safe regulation allow 10 people at outdoor activities; we will take two groups of 10 (maximum 20 members). BYO lunch and chair or groundsheet.

Meet at the Seniors/U3A car park, Fawkner Drive, Benalla, 9.45am for 10am departure. For further information on this nearby interesting area, Safari/Google, Warby- Ovens National Park.
On Wednesday 21st October it is proposed to conduct a walk in El Dorado, weather and COVID restrictions permitting. It is proposed to walk from the old historic dredge to the main part of the town near the museum. It may be possible to organise a lunch for the group at Victoria’s smallest pub before completing nearby Reid’s walk to the swing bridge. Please meet behind the Senior Citizen’s centre at 9.30am.

Myrtleford, nestled in the Ovens Valley with Mt Buffalo providing a dramatic backdrop, offers many interesting places to visit. Julie McNeill will take us on these diverse walks with something of interest to all walkers and abilities. The Ovens River Trail, also known as Myrtleford’s Mosaic Trail, is a treasure cove of hidden art! This sealed path closely follows the Ovens River between Rotary and Apex Parks, passes through native bush and crosses the river twice. The Township Walk of Discovery, highlights the significant historical aspect of Myrtleford’s fascinating life ... settlement, war and industries. The Murray to Mountain Rail Trail - an opportunity to walk a section of this 95km trail that goes through the town!
