Once again, we kept a keen watch on the weather forecast and were rewarded with a pleasant walk up the Old Coach Road to the Mt Pilot lookout.The gravel road was mostly dry and the eleven walkers enjoyed not only the amazing views and wildflowers, but an unusual sighting of some gang gang cockatoos. Our photographers - Bev, Andi and James - were kept busy!

Wednesday 2nd November
For what is likely to be our last walk of the year (unless we get carried away at our Christmas lunch), we will explore some of the trails at Winton Wetlands, with a BYO picnic lunch at Green’s Hill. This will be a total of about 8km, finishing with the sculpture walk, afternoon tea at the cafe and discussion of our walks for 2023.
