A lovely picnic spot.

To make the tramp a round trip, we took the track upriver to Blacksmith Gully. (Click and compare GPS with Ardachy GPS), taking this time the steep route on the left to return to the track we came in on.

the tiredness of a hot windless afternoon. However 12 of us are the fitter for it and enjoyed the ruggedness of the hill and the tranquillity of the river walk alongside the river that made the tramp a round trip. Thanks to George for leading us on one of the three or four tramps that there are from the Hindon area to the river and one that we haven’t attempted for a while. The number of 4WD tracks that there are on the hillside between the Hindon Road and the river is more than one would think. A good day and not too long. – Ian.
