We walked from the truck stop on Old Sydney Road to the Yarrawonga Road near the DK Henderson factory then returned--a distance of approximately 7 kms. This area is full of bird life and native bushes and has been well regenerated to preserve the creek banks which have significant erosion.
The wattle is just coming into its full glory. Part of the route followed the railway line and also went past the concrete cast plant. This is the trail which connects Benalla to the Winton dam wall and then onto the Mokoan Hub. We were lucky that despite a very cold start to the day and an earlier cool wind, it was pleasant enough for the walk.
