Unfortunately the School Holidays and the approach of Easter probably affected the attendance on this great walk, but Irene, Kerrie and I enjoyed the fine weather, magnificent trees and views from Mount Samaria.
We left the car in the Wild Dog Park and walked back along the road to the Eastern most track up the mountain. After admiring the views we had lunch on the top before descending by the more Westerly track, which leads over the road to the start of the Wileman Track. This leads to a detour to the falls and a descent of 79 steps. There was a reasonable amount of water in the creek and good views to the West. We had afternoon tea in the Samaria Wells Park. Walk distance was 6.7 Km.
Yes, I am combining these walks at Bright as they are not too hard and are divided into a morning and afternoon walk along the Ovens River, with lunch back at the cars. Anyone not wanting to do both walks can enjoy the Autumn foliage in the Centenary Park or visit the shops in the afternoon. Of course the main object of this visit is to admire the Autumn foliage. We leave the Centre Car Park at 8.30 am. Please let me know if you are coming on 5762 1980 so I can arrange transport.
Vaughan reports that Marion is recovering well from her fall and is hoping to do more walks in a month's time.
All the best Marion from all at U3A.
