Close to seventy people came along to the April FOBIF walk in the Yapeen and Guildford plateau area. The weather was sunny with a light breeze and walkers enjoyed the sensational views in all directions from Max Kay’s property.
Commentary on this historic and interesting geological area was given by Max, Julian Hollis and Maurie Dynon. Some highlights were the viewing of several Koori scar trees, gathering at ‘Strathloddon’ which was the 1840’s site of the first non indigenous settlement in the Castlemaine district, and Julian’s comments on the geological history of the area including the formation of the Guildford plateau. Maurie also gave a well-received talk on the work of the Guildford Landcare Group.
FOBIF would like to thank Max for helping to organise this walk on his property and all three leaders for sharing their knowledge.
Our next walk will be on 15 May to Cobblers Gully and Herons Reef. Leaders are Lionel Jenkins and Barb Guerin. Details can be found here.
It was a fantastic walk. Thanks very much!
