.Durikai State Forest 21st May Leaders: Jeanie Wylie and Peter Haselgrove

The trip will be through Durikai from south to north, partly following the rabbit fence. The area is ironbark box open forest / woodland on traprock. Whilst there were no wildflowers at the time of the pre-outing, two wattle species were starting to flower and numerous others were coming into bud. At one spot the Mugga was flowering and a large number of honeyeaters were heard. Our lunch spot should be at a dam and cleared area which should be good to explore.
We should car-pool and aim to leave Weeroona Park by 9:00 am sharp. So, please try to arrive by 8:45am.
The track has numerous whoa-boy drains across it and so highish clearance vehicles, preferably 4WD, are needed. Our AWD Grand Vitara was fine.
Lunch and smoko will be at the vehicles. Add some extra food in case we are still out at afternoon tea time.
Bring water, sunscreen and all the usual bits and pieces. And chairs if you can fit them in.
