This is a set of three short walks that will provide an introduction to the sights and heritage of the Bogong High Plains around Falls Creek. First stop will be at the entry to Falls Creek from where we will take a short walk (500 m) along a path to Falls Creek Falls.  Next we will climb Roper’s Lookout, a rocky outcrop that gives a good view over the surrounding country. This walk is about 4 km in total. It starts off flat and then there is a bit of a climb, including steps, to the summit. Then it’s back in the cars for the drive to Wallace’s Hut, the oldest hut on the High Plains. After exploring the hut and learning a little of its history, we will do a loop walk around the Wallace Heritage Trail and see some of the other features of this fascinating area. This walk is 5 km long, all on footpaths.

You can choose to do one, two or all three of the walks. Pace will be easy. You will need to be prepared for the changeable Alpine weather with a spare sweater and good rain jacket, and with shorts or lightweight trousers NOT jeans. Boots are not necessary but enclosed shoes with good grip are essential. I can provide more information when you book in.

The walk is designed for beginners and those who do not know Falls Creek well, but of course everyone is welcome. If you are interested in coming, please phone me after 4th March. Do not send an email or SMS because I need to talk to you.
