Event Type

DATE: Sunday April 21st

TIME: approx 5.30 -9.00 PM Members only

DURATION: 2-3 hours 6.5km

WALK LEADER: Ari Baelde

DIFFICULTY: Medium. Walk will include off-track sections in the dark. A good level of fitness and agility are a pre-requisite

DESCRIPTION:  A walk in the bush near Bullarto where the wombats are tame and not prone to attack (just kidding)

We will meet in Bullarto South and stop briefly at Jeremy Neal’s Wombat Native Plants Nursery. Jeremy will introduce us to some of the Wombat Forest native edible fruiting plants. We will continue our walk past the site of Wheeler’s 1871 sawmill with some remnant buildings. We follow the timber tramway embankment through the bush to old Bullarto cemetry which is no longer accessible by road. Over the back of the cemetry is the head of the Wombat Creek where we will wait for Wombats to appear in the fading light. The way back will involve some scrambling over logs in the dark, which makes this a medium difficulty walk rather than an easy one. 

NO DOGS
