FedWalks2022 was held in the Warby Ranges and Wangaratta Region on 1-2 October 2022.

Our host clubs put together a schedule of 35 activities (including three cycle events) to our favourite waterfalls, rivers, forest, mountains and secret places; wildflowers, wild places, and some not so wild.  With easy, medium and some harder walks, the opportunity to practice your map-reading skills with some off-track adventuring in the Killawarra Forest, and an introduction to our fabulous cycle paths, all interests were catered for.
The successful weekend was enjoyed by around 200 participants and by all accounts a great time was had by all.  See you all again next year!
