With the hot weather approaching, we are engaging in a big push to get some work done on the Central Gully track at Mt Arapiles before end of year. After that our stonemason and haulers go into summer hibernation. Three working bees planned and the first one is soon – Saturday 11th November! Drop me a line if you can. It’s always fun. You engage in strength training. And may the warm fuzzy feeling be with you.
Central Gully Walking Track Repair Project kicked off at Mount Arapiles-Tooan State Park on Saturday, 7th May. Walter Braun, legendary stone mason, guided a small team of volunteers from the Victorian Climbing Club / CliffCare and Friends of Arapiles in the first stages of this partnership project with Parks Victoria. It will take quite a few more working bees over the next couple of years and some more fundraising but we are confident that the end result will be as magnificent as the Pharos Gully track which was recently completed by the same groups at the park. On this first work day, a temporary access track for the power wheel barrow to ferry supplies was established. The Central Gully walking track remains open whilst the works are undertaken. Please continue to use the old track and stay off the temporary access track. You can help be donating to either Friends of Arapiles which has a donation box near the Pines campground toilets or online at Cliffcare herehttps://www.givenow.com.au/cliffcare/donate?step=e1s1or volunteering for a working bee – firstname.lastname@example.org Follow the project and updates via cliffcare.org.au and Facebook CliffCare Victoria.
