Walk name/location
Marble Hill Road to EE George Road to Hallett. Based in Clare/ Burra
Walk grade
End-to-End Minus 1
Description

The theme for the weekend is “Stone”

Sat.24th: Today we do something different – we head North! After the now customary warmup of road walking, we climb up to the Brown Hill Range and a long walk along the stone wall which formed the western boundary of the historic Bungaree Station. Finally, its a quick trundle down to the cars we had left at the quarry.

Sun.25th: An easy day of mostly rural backroads walking with just a bit of cross country. Perhaps this time the winds that typically blow in this section are at our backs.
