Walk Description

Last minute addition to the Spring walks program!

This will be a public transport walk. Bring your myki.

We will be taking the 9:13am train from Flagstaff to Middle Gorge, which arrives at 10:01am. Drivers are advised to catch this train at Clifton Hill at 9:28am. We will be return to the city from Greensborough station, and the train will stop at Clifton Hill.

Drivers can also meet at Middle Gorge station at 10am, but will face a longer journey by public transport at the end of the walk.

We will walk from Middle Gorge station along the west side of the Plenty Gorge.  Plenty Gorge features steep cliffs, lakes and plenty of wildlife  – on our last visit, we spotted a wombat, an echidna and lots of kangaroos. The walk is quite short, but there may be creek crossings and off track sections. Please note, this walk is a completely different walk to any other YHA walks in Plenty Gorge, including this years sausage sizzle.

Expect to be back in the city around 4pm
