We walked on to view the Ovens stream and a crossing which looked a bit “iffy” before retracing our steps for lunch beside the stream at the park. After lunch we walked the levy bank track upstream to meet the Bon Accord track and reached the fore mentioned “crossing” from the other side. There was some beautiful bush land along this stretch and it took some time to get the walkers to leave the water washed stones beside the stream. We walked back to the cars and drove to the Recreation Reserve for a further walk beside the western Ovens stream that joins the eastern stream a bit north of the town. I must mention the many well constructed and informative sign posts throughout the township. Also welcome to Narelle Harvey.
This easy 6 km loop will start from Rotary Park. It follows the Ovens River closely as it passes through native bushland and crosses the river twice before passing through central Myrtleford and then returning to Rotary Park via the Rail Trail. If there is time we may walk up to Tower Hill. We will leave Benalla from the tennis court car park Barkly Street at 9.30am. Ring the Leader Helen Spinks 5762 3223
