Lavender Trail E2E4 Fenders Rd Mt Beevor to Tungkillo to Springton
Walk grade
End-to-End Lavender Trail
Description

On Saturday we pass through beautiful areas with towering Eucalypts, panoramic views and abundant wildlife. First dairies in the district dated from 1840s supplying cheese to the Victorian Goldfields. Later in the day we see shearing shed built in 1841 and still in use.

On Sunday, if there has been rain, we may have inundated areas to negotiate.  Shelter is sparse but rocky outcrops and panoramas south to Mt Beevor (still fresh in our minds!). We pass by St Magnus Homestead whose occupants  included Kym Bonython.  Sheep grazing, stands of eucalypt plantations gradually give way to grape vines in this district.

Walk Difficulty – The Lavender Trail walks are demanding and suitable for experienced walkers who have walked regularly in various terrain consisting of long-distance trails with some steep inclines/declines, irregular surface with loose uneven, slippery base. They have a walking time of about 5 to 7 hours and will require a good degree of physical fitness.

BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.
