WALLAGOOT WALK and WALLOW
Ever wondered what lies beyond Wallagoot Lake, well here’s your chance to find out.
The walk is only about 20 minutes each way, so allow a couple of hours to trek, to lunch and to wallow.
A backpack with your picnic lunch and a drink is needed.
Suggest wearing or bringing swim wear, just in case we need to cool off.
Wear sturdy shoes as the track is gravel.
Sun protection is definitely needed.
