FedWalks2022 was held in the Warby Ranges and Wangaratta Region on 1-2 October 2022.
An organising committee was established with representatives from Benalla Bushwalking Club, Warby Range Bushwalking club and Border Bushwalkers. Representatives from the land managers Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning were also involved.
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 base for the weekend was the Wangaratta Showgrounds.
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!
The $30 registration fee included:
- Two activities led by experienced leaders - walk or cycle!
- Comprehensive souvenir walk booklet
- Optional walk on Friday or optional bike ride on Monday.
Grading is as per Australian Walking Track Grading System (AWTGS)
