The Reef Hills have turned blue with the best display of Chocolate Lilies I have seen for years!! Four walkers had morning tea at the picnic ground before starting down Four Mile road and crossing the ridge to walk about half a kilometre down the Reef Hills road. We crossed the creek and headed northwards to visit a mining site .
Mining site at Reef Hills
Returning to the creek, we noticed blue stains on our pants from walking through the lilies (they wash out OK). The next track runs parallel to the Reef Hills road and rises gently to the picnic ground. After lunch we drove down Double Gates road to find some Tiger Orchids. On the way out we picked up some rubbish for disposal. The only adverse items for the day were the ever-present mosquitoes!
About Easy Walks
Easy Walks are aimed at maintaining fitness by introducing people to Bushwalking and giving previous bushwalkers the opportunity to continue on shorter and easier tracks. Walks will be approximately 5 kms without a lot of climbing, within an hour’s drive of Benalla. Participants will require sturdy shoes & able to carry a backpack containing snack, lunch, adequate water, waterproof jacket & personal items. Members will be required to notify the convenors of attendance 3 days prior to the walk to enable carpooling, travel costs, and other arrangements. .
Easy Walks will be held on the first Wednesday of each month from April to November and leave from the carpark behind the Senior Complex (U3A), Fawckner Drive at 10 am or as determined by the convenors
