|This is as far down Ingliston Creek as I got today.|
|It was another cracker of a day today...although a little rain wouldn't go astray as things are getting pretty dry.|
|Gee the country is looking dry for early Spring.|
|The scenery on my little off piste side trip was pretty sweet.|
|Don't miss this turn.|
I walked 6 kilometres and climbed 179 metres on today’s easy stroll. There is a short off track section on this stroll but it follows a creek, so it shouldn't present any real navigational issues, it's easy enough to omit this section if your not wanting to walk off track though. Ingilston Gorge is within the boundaries of the Werribee Gorge State Park and while Inglston Gorge isn’t anywhere near as grand as the nearby Werribee Gorge, it’s still well worth a look I think. I used Glen Tempest’s notes today out of his ‘Melbourne’s Western Gorges’ book, Tyrone Thomas has also written this walk up in some of his old books. Another author that covers this walk is a guy called Jack Myers, his 2002 book ‘Jack’s Track Notes, Day Walks in Bacchus Marsh District’ is the absolute definitive guide to these western gorges, I think.
