Restoring landscapes across the Mount Alexander Region

16 Oct 2015 – New watering point on the Goldfields Track

Posted on 5 October, 2015 by Connecting Country

The Goldfield’s Track stretches between Bendigo and Ballarat, and along its way passes through some amazing forests, woodlands and historic landscapes in the Mount Alexander shire and immediate surrounds.

The Great Dividing Trail Association (GDTA) has invited members and other supporters of Connecting Country to attend the launch of the FIRST watering point on the Leanganook Track section of the Goldfields Track (between Bendigo and Castlemaine). GDTA funded the new tank and in consultation with Coliban Water, the tank was recently assembled and installed on site.  Coliban Water is GDTA’s partner in this initiative and they have announced that they will ‘host’ the tank for track users.

When is the launch: Friday 16 October 2015, from 11.00 am

Where:  At the new tank in Mandurang South, which is located east of the Goldfields Track, next to the Coliban Channel and near the Parks Victoria dry campsite.  Mandurang South Road is close by and Map 30 of the Goldfields Track Walking Guide refers to it.   A map is also attached (CLICK HERE).

RSVP:  For catering purposes by Friday 9 October 2015 to Alison Lanigan at

Refreshments will be provided after the launch.
