Lockdown over! Where to walk? Why not a local walk? Haven't walked at Firth Park for many years; what is it like now?  After a short drive we found the road in although dirt was in good condition much better than our last trip where it was bone jarring.  Firth park was in great condition and with new toilets.  However with the recent storms over Victoria there were many trees down and lots of damage.  A recent fire through the area had not helped at all.  Park's Vic crews seem to have been hard at work as the track to the old Anderson Mill looked to be open.
This walk is quite easy.  Nice undulating path, well defined to the old sawmill where there's a huge old sawdust pile. Once there you retrace your step back to Firth Park. Longer walks are available but we have not done any.
