Bushwalking: Into the bushwalking club’s third decade


ABOVE: Old Scotch bushwalkers stride out during a recent walk.

As the Old Scotch Bushwalking Club strides into its third decade, yet another great year of interesting walks is unfolding. Among a list of stimulating destinations, Sunday walks are scheduled for Mornington, Trentham, Murrindindi, Bendigo, the Dandenong Ranges and Bright. There is also a full programme of midweek walks on Wednesdays or Thursdays throughout the year.

The club celebrated its 20th birthday last December with a superb dinner at the Sandringham Club attended by 80 members. The night included a comedy routine presented by club past presidents Graham Stanley (‘60) and David Ashton (‘65), which was a ‘history’ of the club’s first 20 years, including gentle digs at some of the club’s well-known characters.

In March, club members enjoyed a weekend of walks on Mt Baw Baw and along the Thomson River. Accommodation was at the comfortable Rawson Village, about 165km east of Melbourne, where there was plenty of fun and fellowship.
