Posted on 16 April, 2019 by Ivan

The Friends of the Box-Ironbark Forests (FOBIF) are conducting their monthly walk this Easter Sunday (21 April 2019), along Salters Creek near Castlemaine. These regular Sunday walks (click here for dates) are free and open to anyone to join. They meet at 9.30 am outside Castlemaine Community House (30 Templeton St, Castlemaine VIC) and carpool to the start of the walk. Please bring water, morning tea and lunch. Walks usually finish mid afternoon and are cancelled on Total Fire Ban days in the area.

This month’s walk will be along Salters Creek in Glenluce. Starting at the Hunters track dam, the 5 km walk includes some tracks, some walking through bush along the creek bed and a couple of rough steep climbs. FOBIF suggests that if you usually use walking poles, bring them along for this walk. As it’s Easter Sunday they have planned a shorter walk and plan to be back in town by 1.00 pm.
