A walk in the mist

On June 19 twenty three hardy souls braved unpromising conditions to tackle FOBIF’s June walk in a remote corner of the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park. In fact, however, the weather held nicely, and the group experienced some great moments walking the serene and misty ridges of the south end of the Park, sampling a stretch of the Goldfields Track through Stone’s Gully, and doing a bit of a scramble over Sebastopol Gully and through interesting relic mining sites.

The dim winter’s day provided some good sightings of fungi and a few patches of the rare Fryerstown grevillea [not in flower], plus a surprising show of wildflowers, masses of hakeas in bloom being the highlight. And the rain held off till the precise moment the group finished the walk in the afternoon.

    This was a wonderful walk. Nioka accidentally deleted the photos she took from her camera. So we’ll have to go back and take a photo of Charles Sanger’s hut.
