Once again, the rain radar didn’t look promising but 13 determined walkers set off for Oxley, where Wende organised the car shuttles that would bring us safely back again. We studied the details of local history while gathering at the park, and then set off on an excellent track to Milawa,4.8kms in total, walking alongside paddocks and an old mill before arriving in Milawa where we enjoyed lunch at the pretty little John Mcaleese Park behind the bakery. Fortified by lunch, another 1.8km took us to the Milawa Cheese Factory and a leisurely talk over coffee and cake. Luckily, the rain held off and we then shuttled back to Oxley and our cars, and then home.
Many thanks to Wende for suggesting the walk, and managing the mathematics of car shuttles, and Andi for the photos.
New members are always welcome-Easywalks are aimed at maintaining fitness by providing the opportunity for walks of approx 7km. Tracks are usually easier and more defined than regular bushwalking but participants should be comfortable with a walk of this length-a test walk around the Lake is recommended!
Walks take place on the first Wednesday of each month,and car pooling is usually available. Convenors Glen Chessells 0431201077 or Julie McNeill 0407823031 can be contacted for further information.
