Bega Valley Bushwalkers is a group of friends who walk together on a fortnightly basis in the cooler parts of the year. Walks vary from relatively easy to quite challenging, on varied terrain and from 8 to 18km. A reasonable level of fitness is required - we don't "stroll". Each walk is led by someone who has experience of the particular route - walks are located throughout the Bega valley shire and beyond.
Flexible itinerary; ride for as many days as you wish. Mountain bike preferred, but road bike OK between Beechworth and Bright. Due to good road access riders can go as far as they wish with some pre-organised car-shuffling, return or one-way.
Grade: Very little walking involved – easy paddling if low winds
Meeting: Car park above Davidson Whaling Station
Time: 9.00 am
This year we are paddling up the lower Towamba River and back with a morning and afternoon tea stops on the way. We will get as far as possible on a rising tide before lunch and then back to the mouth on the falling tide. The river passes through attractive forest and rural scenery. Davidson Whaling Station turnoff is part way along Edrom Road and is signposted on the left.
The trip is dependent on weather and in the event of gale force winds we will probably have to postpone it. Check your email and the blog a day or two before the date or give us a call.
Pretty circular walk along the southern shores of Nargal Lake (perched lake) about 4-5km along Fuller's and Loaders Beaches plus trail. Lunch at the mouth of Corunna Lake. Opportunities for swimming. Viisit to historical velodrome.
