Description

Note well: we are walking this weekend out of the normal order

Saturday – Webb Gap to Burra Rd: The trail continues along the Tothill Range, providing expansive views over the surrounding farmland and Apoinga Lagoon.

Sunday – Gerkie Gap to Webb Gap: This section of the trail follows the Tothill Ranges, which boast the largest remaining section of remnant scrub in the area and are one of the delights of the Mid-North. There are pleasant vistas over the surrounding farmland, with constant reminders of 19th century optimism and 21st century technology.

Monday – Peters Hill to Gerkie Gap: A pleasant walk along back roads through undulating farmland to the southern end of Tothill Range, taking in the town of Marrabel and its memorial to the famous buckjumper ‘Curio’.

If you would like to register for only one or two of the walk days, PLEASE call the office to register after registrations are open
