Seniors conquer Mt Samaria 953 metre rocky summit on April Fool’s Day!
The Samaria ranges has an interesting record. This slender plateau provided a source of food for the local Aborigines. In the 1840s much of the area was under grazing. With stands of magnificent mature trees, by the 1920s a large scale timber industry was in operation. In 1979 about 7000 hectares were declared a State Park. Today, Mt Samaria State Park eucalyptus forest offers many walking tracks, scenic views and a glimpse of history. Welcome to Lynn & Freya and thank you to our leader, Vaughan Cowan.
