Another stunning winter's day..and our group of 8 Benalla Bushwalking Club walkers (energised by coffee from a cute new cafe in Bright) left our cars at Dougherty's Bridge, just out of Bright, and followed the 6km return Wandi Walk, along pristine Morses Creek, to Alpine Park. We diverted through the quaint town of Wandiligong to the historic Gold Diggings area by the creek, where the original Chinese Bridge has been preserved, together with information boards in English and Chinese, explaining the history of this interesting area. Lunch in the sunny rotunda in Alpine Park was followed by a stroll along the Creek track back to the cars. Afternoon tea (more food!) was shared in Howitt Park in Bright. Thanks to our leader John Boehm for a lovely walk in a picturesque area. Special welcome to Kay and Gordon, on their first outing with the Benalla Bushwalking Club: hope we gave you a taste of the pleasures of Bushwalking..
