Wombat Forest Day Trip

Event Date: 
Sun, 13/04/2014 - 09:00 to 16:00

Feb trip rescheduled...   

This day trip will follow similar lines to the trip we ran in Oct 2012.  On that trip a number of tracks were closed during winter.  I expect that we will have more tracks to explore this time around.  We will meet at Gisborne, then explore the forest tracks and end up at Garden of St Erth, Blackwood, where there is a cafe.  We should have time for a walk through the gardens or a coffee for those interested.

Gawler Ranges, South Australia in April

Event Date: 
Sat, 12/04/2014 - 07:00 to Sun, 27/04/2014 - 17:00

The Gawler Ranges is a range of mountains in South Australia to the north of Eyre Peninsula. The ranges were named by Edward John Eyre after the Governor of South Australia, George Gawler in 1839. This was on one of Eyre's earlier expeditions before his famous crossing of the Nullarbor Plain further west.  This is a rugged semi-desert area of South Australia, with all of the colours of the northern Flinders Ranges and within 2 days of Melbourne.  It is an area of large hills and gullies with rocky gorges, formed by extensive volcanic activity 1500 million years ago.  Bird life is prolific with 140 species recorded in the park.  The trip will also include Lake Gairdner National Park.

The March Mid-week Lunch Run

Event Date: 
Wed, 26/03/2014 (All day)

I’m getting hungry so we are having another mid-week lunch run.  We shall stop for a morning coffee a little way out of town and then on to lunch a bit further out of town (probably heading north this month).  As usual, put your names into the sign-ups, and be at the Burvale Hotel car park on the Cnr of Burwood Hwy and Springvale Rd (on the Springvale Rd side) at 9.30am.  Any car will do.
