We returned to a different section of the Reef Hills with a mostly different crew. This time there were 10 walkers on a circuit of about 5.7km starting from the Picnic ground. We started through the bush to follow a creek bed and track towards the start of Indian’s road near the highway. This area had some spectacular mines, including one obviously still being used.
From here we had a short road walk to reach the South ridge track, more rubbish dumps, but a few more wildflowers. Halfway across the ridge we found an extensive mine where we had lunch.
We crossed the ridge and walked a short distance along four mile road to the cars. We were happy to find a handsome Gompholobium
We hope to tour a series of waterfalls. The snow melt and recent rain should provide an interesting walk. I have an alternative if needed. The falls are Eurobin, Rollasons and Dickson’s.
We will leave the Barkly Street car park at 8.00am. Please ring 5762 1980.
