Because Walk 5 in Malmsbury was very quick and easy, I then drove on to the next town of Kyneton to tick off another walk. This walk was about 5k out of Kyneton, in the Black Hill Nature Reserve. The walk was a combination of three marked walks – The Circuit Track, The Ridge Track […]
I’m a little bit behind where I intended to be by now,for my 150 Walks in Victoria Challenge. This is mainly due to the extreme hot weather we’ve been having here, in Central Victoria.

Only three more sleeps until The Bloody Long Walk. I will be so happy when it’s over as I feel like I’ve been training for it forever. I started training for Melbourne Coastrek in December 2016. When that was over in May this year, I just continued on with the training until now. Today I […]
