Walk in Gold Creek Reservoir area

Richard Tumman, a 40 year resident of the Brookfield area, will lead a walk starting from the Gold Creek Reservoir carpark at the end of Gold Creek Reservoir, Brookfield (UBD 136 L14), beginning at 8 am on Saturday 13 October. The walk, about 3-4 kilometres, will take in sites of historical importance as well as old growth trees (eg figs and flooded and spotted gums) and bush regeneration. We will take a look at the heritage-listed Valve House at the Reservoir, and the old Weather Station.  The walk will be mainly along existing tracks.  Bring hat, sunscreen, insect repellent (it seems ticks can be found in the area) and water. No need to book. Ring Margaret Palmer on 3378 9886 if you have any queries.
