Meet at Lake Catani campground shelter at 8:45am to leave at 9am.

We will take the Lakeside walk heading in a clockwise direction then join the View Point Nature Walk.  This will take us through tall montane forests ending at the Buckland Valley lookout for a break.  We will head back the same track rejoining the Lakeside walk back to the campground.  Don't forget to bring a snack for morning tea.

We should be back between 12 and 12.30pm. 

GRADE 3 Walk

Suitable for most ages and fitness levels. Some bushwalking experience recommended. Track may have short steep hill sections, a rough surface and many steps.
