We enjoyed our lunch on the Northern edge, sitting high on the pink granite rock face, in shade with a pleasant breeze, looking across the valley to Thoona. We could see the pub... but there were a few fences in the way.
The walk totalled precisely 7 kilometres end-to-end, and our scrambles encompassed 100 metres up and down; the highest point (Mt Meg) being just over 300 metres above sea-level, down to just over 200 metres on the West side. On a warm day, it was not too arduous a walk, but one did have to watch where one's feet went.
The Pink Devonian granite intrusion formed the range around 400 million years ago. It has worn down a little since, and is very photogenic.
“Benalla Bushwalkers climbed Mt Meg
But Beverley said she'd sooner
Sit in comfort and be fed
Across the valley at Thoona”
