BUSHWALKS for 2015

Our walks are on Sundays, they are free and non-members are welcome. We meet at 9.30am outside 30 Templeton Street, Castlemaine (Continuing Ed.) and carpool to the start of the walk. Bring water, morning tea and lunch. Walks usually finish mid afternoon although the shorter March and October walks should finish by midday. Walks are cancelled on Total Fire Ban days in the area.

20 September   Fryers Ridge
Leader: Alex Panelli 5423 2041
c.6-8km
A walk in the on the eastern side of Fryers Ridge in the Wattle Track, Telecom track area through some perhaps fairly typical/unspectacular bushland. We will find out together what it will be like in September. For most of the way we will be on reasonably smooth tracks but we may also follow some trail bike trails for part of the way and may pass directly through bushland for some short sections.

18 October   Morgans Track
Leader: Elaine Bayes  0431 959 085
c.4-5km
Come for a pleasant walk off track with local ecologists to see a stunning display of spring wildflowers and learn a little about their ecology. Or just stop and smell the “better than roses!”

Meet at the Continuing Education Building at 9.30.
