NOVEMBER
   
    Grade 5 annotated copy Sun 25th Tarilta Creek Gorge Walk
Leader: Muriel
Grade 5: 12 km (4.5hrs) circuit walk, unmarked track along the creek with some creek cross country bushwalking
 Leaving:  Contact Muriel
  muriel preview Tarilta Creek runs off Mt Franklin’s western slopes before entering the Upper Loddon State Forest. This is a tranquil, lesser known area, between Daylesford and Castlemaine is approximately 90min drive from Werribee. We start off by following the Great Dividing Trail through dry box woodland, typical of the Dry Diggings area. After about 4kms we turn off and follow a small green gully. There is no water in the gully but it is heavily eroded providing some interesting scenery. The gully heads down to the Tarilta Creek, which provides a beautiful habitat for a wide range of animals and birds. The river level is generally low and we walk along the grassy flats and meadows lining the creek where possible. There are numerous water crossings, which require some balancing on the river rocks. We will have lunch at Campsite Flat, in a river bend with a fireplace and log seats. Severe back burning was done all along this gorge a number of years ago which has resulted in a high rate of erosion affecting the last remnants of the old growth forest. Some majestic manna gums and candlebark grow all along the creek today. After about 3km, we will reach Limestone Bridge where we will head down a 4WD track to Conical Hill. From Conical Hill we head across the bush to Porcupine Ridge Road and back to our cars. Wear suitable footwear, trousers (recommended) and gaiters (if possible), bring lunch, walking poles and carry enough water. Time permitting; we will have afternoon tea in Daylesford.
