Wombat Sate Forest - exploring
(Weekend Trip)

Sat 20 - Sun 21 Nov, 2021

Trip - Easy to Medium

We will visit a local market and focus on the history of the area. It will involve some 4WD. There is a wide range of sites we could visit. There are old water channels that lead to mine remains. There is an option for rough walk to visit the Tunnel from Amblers Lane. Depending on road conditions, weather and people's interest, we will vary the sites visited.

Sunday will explore the more difficult and iconic tracks. The aim will be to drive Amblers Lane, Trout Tk, Diggers Tk avoiding the enormous bog hole, down XL Tk, Ratcliffe Tk, Nuggets Tk, Holts Rd.

There are tracks that are not on the maps and the ones that are there vary in condition from month to month. A flexible approach to the route will be taken.
