This day is designed for beginners or those new to the area, but all are welcome. It comprises two or three shortish walks. We will drive to Falls Creek and walk up Roper’s Lookout for a bird’s eye view of the area. This walk is 2 km each way, flat at first then with a steady climb on a marked track with some steps. Next, we will drive to the start of the Wallace Hut Heritage Circuit, a 5.6 km loop that takes in some of the significant heritage and ecology of the High Plains.  The walk is on a good track, flatish with one short climb. We will go at an easy pace and your leader, a trained tour guide, will explain some of the features of the area. If time permits, on the drive home we will stop briefly to explore Fainter Falls, about 700m off the main road.
