RA50 Walk Birdsland Reserve, Belgrave South
April 18, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm
When: Sunday 18th April at 9:30am
This walk has been so popular that I thought we might get another one in before the cold and wet weather. And Lets do a picnic lunch again.
So please bring along a picnic lunch, something to sit on and maybe even a bottle of your favourite wine, if your not driving of course. Because we are having a picnic lunch, we will likely wind up this walk in the early afternoon.
Where: Meet at Cnr, Riversdale & Glenferrie Roads Hawthorn at 8:30 am sharp if you need a lift. (Please let Graham know if you require transport)
Meet: Picnic area off Mt Morton Rd, Belgrave Sth. Signposted Birdsland Reserve
