Field Trip - Saturday 21 April - Lake Mackenzie

Meet at 9 am in Mole Creek at the toilet block on the left hand side of the road before the Mole Creek Hotel. We will depart from there shortly after with our guide, Deb Hunter who will take us into Lake Mackenzie to look at the plant recovery following the 2016 bushfires.

Bring lunch, clothing suited to all weather, camera etc. The walk will not be strenuous and we will probably lunch at the hut on the lake. We are not meeting at the Museum carpark, if you need a lift ring a Committee Member to find out who you can approach to share a ride.

Field Trip - Friday 19 to Sunday 21 January - Ben Lomond

Members are invited to attend this two day field trip to Ben Lomond National Park where we will be staying at the Borrowdale Ski Chalet. Our host, Peter Warren, will have the chalet open by 10.00 am on the Friday for your arrival, with the weekend concluding on Sunday by 12 noon.

This is a very interesting place to visit with many walks varying in length and difficulty, great photographic opportunities of an unusual terrain and the wildflowers will hopefully be looking good at this time of year. If an overnight stay is not for you, come for the day and explore with other members.

Please contact Peter on 0409 685 835 if you would like to reserve a bed or need additional information. You will need to bring a sleeping bag or sheets and blankets, pillows and enough food and drink for your stay, the closest shop is approximately 50 kilometres away.

The cost of a day visit is $3.75 and an overnight stay is $11.25 per night. The temperature and weather can change quite quickly, so be prepared for the usual Tasmanian four seasons and don't forget your camera. As this visit is to a national park, all cars need to display a current Parks Pass.
