Walking with the Ramblers

Mighty ramble with lovely bird song and rainforest.

Ten of us set off to climb over the mighty Munibung Hill. For some reason, most thought it was going to be an easy doddle, bit of a stroll and back in a couple of hours. Well, no.

Nearly four and a half hours later we got back to the cars, having explored many different parts of the hill, through a fence to the north, then back along the road to another hole in the fence and down a spur encrusted with lantana to a scramble down a steep and muddy gravel slope.

Being in the company of bushwalking friends makes the outing very enjoyable and being within earshot of bird song almost all of the way is marvellous. To cap off the walk we enjoyed the lovely stretch of rainforest on the way down to Farm Street.
