Murray Valley Bushwalkers News Update March 1 2017
Hi all
So the 2016-17 summer is over and the Tassie love affair continues. It was the most sought after destination for MVB walkers by a long shot this summer - specifically the Tasman Peninsula to walk the Three Capes track and Cape Raoul, Freycinet National Park and we had 4 members visit the Tarkine in the north west of the state. Some are still over there (Ray and Jill) and others (Sean and Liz) are about to buy a house at Longford. At this rate we will have to consider a name change - its a bit of a stretch to call Tasmania part of the Murray Valley!
Make sure you check the program carefully as there are some new and exciting opportunities. Pete is planning to send out a simple program of events update on a weekly basis starting soon.
