All walkers must abide by any COVID-19 health requirements, including providing their own sanitisers, gloves, wipes, masks, etc.  If car pooling/shuffling is required, please contact the event co-ordinator.

This easy walk will explore Victoria's Bonegilla Island, where its only public access by car is from NSW. This is a Murray River island that was formerly attached to Victoria until the Murray River changed course after the state border was delineated over 100 years ago. 

The flat walk will take us past quiet farmland to Ryan Creek. On the way back we go bush for a short way, cross the Murray on the old timber bridge then back to our cars along Waterworks Road.

Meet at the start of Waterworks Road at Riverina Hwy near the Albury airport at 9am.

Dogs OK.

No toilets located on this walk.

Bring hat, water and a morning tea snack. Coffee and cake afterwards for those deserving of it !!
