Winter in the Brisbane Ranges

Sun Jun 20th 2021 8:00:00 -3:00:00

The Brisbane Ranges has some glorious gullies that make for very picturesque walking.   Starting at Sapling Gully Picnic Ground on Aeroplane road we will follow the boudary fence for awhile and hopefully gain some great views across the plains.  A brief uphill will see us rejoining Aerplane Road briefly before walking down the delightful Possum track and once at the bottom we will have lunch.  The after lunch hill will get us warm again before making our way back to the cars and home.

This walk is all on track and while there are a couple of hills neither are very taxing.

Blackwood

Wed Jul 7th 2021 9:00:00 -4:00:00

To register for the walk, everybody should please phone Ron Bell 0429 384 057.

Meet at Hungry Jacks before 8:00am for carpooling, or at the General Store in Blackwood at 9:00. Ron has had to change the route as the recent storm has made a giant mess of some of the tracks, with large trees having fallen and still lying across damaged tracks and roads.  Instead the walk will be modified to go closer around the town, it might now be more E than EM, but Ron thinks it'll still be close to 12 kilometres.  Sue now lives in the bush there has checked out the new route which is safe, and is inviting everybody to stop at her house for morning tea where people can use the toilets, and her husband will be making scones for everyone.  Whilst Sue is not asking for any payment for the morning tea, Ron suggests everyone should be prepared to make a small gold coin contribution.
