Interested members of MVB may want to join me at the Prom for this activity auspiced by Parks Victoria and Friends of the Prom. We usually arrive on the Friday either during the day or evening at the Stockyard campground. Car pooling can be arranged. 

The campgrounds is reserved exclusively for those attending the Saturday work party.  Friday night is usually a social evening after setting up tents. If the weather is agreeable, most Sundays take the form of a social bushwalk arranged on the weekend.
