This walk was last put on as part of the 40th anniversary week-end.

After parking or cars at Lake Kerford we head off to Hurdle Flat. Hurdle Flat was a thriving community during the gold rush of the 1870’s. Fletchers dam is our next destination. Along the way we pass a memorial to Charlie Gunther, a timber worker killed on the spot in 1959.

From Fletchers Dam our next stop is Wallaby Mine. The relics here are in good condition and look as if they could be restarted with very little effort. From here we go to the Nine Mile Creek historic area and back to Lake Kerford.
