Wombat Wander (Vic) Melb Cup Weekend 2016
« on: November 04, 2016, 08:48:34 PM »
Well…yet another great time had thanks to Kyle (aka ‘Alien’ on the forum) and Coral, this being our second Wombat Wander trip. The tracks, views, local attractions and history of the area all shared very knowledgeably by Kyle. Old mining sites & gold diggings, a walk into a disused mine, tunnels, a drive along a disused railway line which went through cuttings, old cemeteries, Trentham Falls, mineral springs, St Anne’s winery, the Chocolate Mill, cafes, Daylesford Market, the Pig & Whistle pub (with bus pickup from the campground!) etc. Lots of fun at a relaxed pace and a good mix of ‘bush’ and ‘civilization’.  We saw lots of things we would not otherwise have known about as our trusty leader Kyle showed us the way to go - and once, the way not to go  ;) ;)) (Good air under that passenger front wheel Kyle – unfortunately no photographic evidence of you taking one for the team - or the subsequent winch recovery - or of the rest of your party taking the ‘chicken track’  ;) ;)). Added to the mix were Robert’s chainsaw/Kyle’s winching skills which saw a fallen tree cleared from the track so that we could get into a fantastic campsite. So much to see and do in the area, and so much better with the benefit of an enthusiastic local sharing his knowledge.
Thanks again, we had a great time! Now to wash the dust & mud off!
Fellow Tvanners – you should not miss the opportunity to do Kyle’s trip if it comes up again!!

Thanks for the write up :D
We couldn't access a few spots but a slight tweak of the plans saw us enjoying our time.
I'd like to run a similar trip when things are a little warmer and with more notice.
