ABC Walking Group

The Walking Group provides an opportunity to explore the beauty of the world around us while walking and chatting with others from the ABC community. We aim to have an outing 2 - 3 times per year.  

The next outing of the ABC walking group will be to the Toolangi State Forest on Sat 6th April 2019. We'll start on the Wirrawilla walk then continue along the spectacular Myrtle Gully Circuit that winds through mountain ash forests, fern-filled gullies and cool temperate rainforests. There are more than 100 different species of birds in the area, including lyrebirds. While many of the mountain ash trees are regrowth from the 1939 forest fires, some are over 200 years old. We'll also be looking for the tallest moss in the world, Dawsonia Superba, which is about 8 centimetres tall and looks like a miniature pine tree. The walk is about 10km.

We'll depart from the Marquis St carpark at 9am, returning by about 4.30pm. Bring water and lunch to eat on the track. We'll drop into a cafe in Healesville for coffee on the way home. It is a rainforest and there are a couple of small creek crossings so waterproof shoes and insect repellent are recommended!
