Lorne Falls - May 2015
Walkers: Bernard Jordan (Leader), Linda Carter, Alan Dow, Bruce McGinness, Matthew Kinross-Smith, Ann & Lauren Molan, Annie Mostin, Les Roe, Conrad and Deborah White. Members of GBC, ORWTA and Camperdown Bushwalking Club.
This sign seemed to summarize our walk nicely; 5 waterfalls & 1 canyon … WOW !!
We left the carpark at Allenvale Mill Site and headed north to flowing Phantom Falls. Then we went via the intriguing Canyon to Henderson and Won Wondah Falls, before walking along old tramway paths to Lower and Upper Kalimna Falls. Continuing on, some of us saw, and all of us heard, a tree fall down nearby. As we were walking along Garvey Track we met an artist painting a mural of the bush including a man searching for his car keys in the bush. I think most of us have got car keys stories!! From Garvey Track, we took Sheoak Track towards the coast, visiting Swallow Cave (alas no swallows) and Sheoak Falls (alas not much water) before the finish.
A variety of trees, ferns, a modest
display of heath, and the good
company, made it an
enjoyable day. Bernard.
