Walk Description

From the Eltham Environs Walking Group, walk 45M

Commences at the corner of Ironbark and Black Gully Rds. Initially walk along Black Gully Rd (verge narrow in places, so care needed), then make a series of left-hand turns: first Millthorpe Rd, then Astons (not sign-posted, but it is the first left hand turn possible, and part-way down a hill)), followed by De Fredericks, Hacketts (not really a left turn: more straight ahead) and finally Ironbark Rd to return to cars.

Note that Eisemans Road, which is about 100 metres beyond a minor road named Blackers La, may not be signposted. Do not follow Eisemans Rd, as it will involve a detour to return to the cars. Instead, stay on De Fredericks Rd for about 500 m. At this point, De Fredericks Rd then turns right. Continue straight on, as noted above, following Hacketts Rd, eventually turning left into Ironbark Rd to return to the cars.

Length: 7.5 km.
