Golton Gorge Walk


We've wanted to do this walk for a while as its been some 25 years since we did it the first time.  But fires had been through and thus the area has been closed for a few years.  Driving past this year we noticed the road was open, so we drove in to see what was going on.  Nice car park and picnic area and yes a sign for a walk.  Time for lunch so we thought, lets stay here and add this walk to today's activities.  Due to the fires it seems that this walk has been re-thought and re-aligned and is now a 600 m return trip, rather than the old 2-3 km round trip.  It's a rough but well marked trail and you are rewarded with interesting views of the gorge  and  the plains below.
