We start at Alpine Park in Wandiligong and follow the Morses Creek walk down stream to Dougherty’s Bridge. There we will put on our waders or old sand shoes and walk in the creek back to Alpine Park. There is at least one section in the creek where the going will be a little difficult but mostly it will be easy walking. If we have any energy left after that we can do the “Diggings Walk” and the ‘Historic Town Walk”.
The “Diggings Walk” is 2 km on a flat track with some steps. It takes us past The Adit, The Diggings Picnic Area, the Junction Mine, the Chinese Pavilion and over the Chinese Bridge. It should take about 1 hour.
The “Historic Town Walk” is about 3 km and should take about 1.5 hours. This walk is on a well formed track with some small hills. Places of interest we will see include the Wandi Pub (1864), Post Office (1885), General Store (1860s), Public Library (1878) and the State School (1877).
