This walk is from the 150 Walks in Victoria book that I’ve posted about previously and so forms part of my goal for 2018.
Glenlyon is a beautiful, small village, situated on the Loddon River, near Daylesford in Central Victoria.
The walk went deep into the Wombat Forest with its stunning bush scenery. The area is very popular for bushwalking, off road cycling and four wheel driving.
The Wombat Forest is generally very beautiful, but the scenery on this work was extra picturesque with contrasts of native bushland and rain forests. The walk followed four wheel drive tracks and not very clearly defined tracks that I would call goat tracks. As it followed the Loddon River, care had to be taken with footing.
The last part of the walk led into Glenlyon with its beautiful Main Street lined with deciduous trees. A beautiful autumn sight and a contrast to the native bushland where I had been walking.
Glenlyon is only about an hour from home so I have walked The Wombat Forest previously but not in the Glenlyon area. Now I know of its beauty I will definitely be back.
