|Our camp at Lake Mourpall, we didn't get here until 1:30am this morning.|
|The walk starts from the Hattah Lake Campground.|
|Heading away from the lakes things dry out pretty quickly.|
|Brockie Track heads across some low dunes, but it's all pretty easy.|
|Nip Nip Track|
|Approaching the Kangaroo Fence again.|
|Wildlife is a bit of a feature of this walk, makes you wonder why I didn't get any decent photos.|
According to my GPS we walked around 15.3 kilometres and climbed 119 metres on this easy walk. We used the map and notes out of Mr Tempest’s book Daywalks Around Victoria, it’s walk number 12 in his book. Mr Thomas among others, has also written up this walk. We also used Meridian Maps Hattah Lakes Sheet along with my GPS topo maps. The tracks on this walk are all well signposted and clear so navigation shouldn’t be an issue. You need to carry all your water requirements for the complete walk, whilst the lakes currently have water in them I wouldn’t be keen to drink it, Blue-Green Algae can be a real issue up here. If, like me, you are partial to Australia’s arid and semi arid country then this walk is definitely one to have on your to do list, I like it that much I’m hoping to head back up in a few weeks to do a more adventurous three day walk….we’ll see.
