Gladys has said we can walk again

We can go in groups, no more than ten

And as she spoke, I thought, ‘Well then

I’ll put this walk on the program again.’


We are expecting more details from BWV on any changes to protocols by 15/5 so be aware you may be asked to do some things differently on this activity.

This walk was the first casualty of the Corona shut down so it’s only right we should revive it as soon as possible. However, in view of the cold mornings, I’ve made it an afternoon walk. The walk takes us up to the top of One Tree (aka Red Light) Hill, that dominates the north of Lavington. We’ll pause there to admire the view and take light refreshments, then descend and do a short bitumen bash to Prune Street, which we will follow to its northern end through farmland beside the Bungambrawatha Creek. Then back to the cars and home in time for tea. The walk is about 8 km but the climb is steep. It’s on tracks but with slippery gravel in places, so walking poles are recommended.

Please observe social distance and hygiene regulations on the walk, no sharing of food or equipment and bring your own hand sanitiser. Interstate, international and intergalactic travellers, please check your local regulations about travel restrictions and border crossings.
