Reform Hill takes its name from a rich gold-bearing quartz ridge discovered in 1854. The short walk of about 5kms on the hill on the outskirts of Myrtleford leads to a lookout where there are views over the surrounding countryside. We’ll stop here for morning tea after we’ve taken a detour to the tower higher up the hill. From there we’ll follow an alternate track to complete a circuit. The walk involves a gentle uphill climb with interpretive signs about the history of the area and seats along the way. From there we’ll go to the Butter Factory for lunch and walk lunch off by following the Ovens River Loop of 5.6km. This walk is flat so no effort is required. It follows the Ovens River closely and passes through native bush. Bookings required so that I can book for lunch.
