High Eucalypt Forest
Mountain Scrub Road, Tallegalla
Saturday 2nd August, 2008 Start: 8:00 a.m.
RDPO Nature Walk # 78 will take us up to the steep hill country on Tallegalla’s western border. It is three years since we last explored this part of the Rosewood Region, which is covered by rich stands of abundant eucalypt forest. Scenic mountain landscapes are also a feature of the area.
We will meet on Mountain Scrub Road past the cattle grid entrance to Lyne and Peter Marshall’s ruggedly beautiful property ‘Didgee Ridge’. We thank Lyne and Peter for making the walk possible and have invited them to be our guests.
Our plant and bird experts will guide us. Don’t forget to bring your bird and plant spotters’ species cards from last time if you have them. Cards available to newcomers before we start.
From Rosewood: Take the Rosewood-Tallegalla Road for about 10 km towards Minden until you reach Woolshed Creek Road on left
From Warrego Highway: Turn off at Marburg. Take the Rosewood Road and turn right at the T instersection for Tallegalla and Minden. Drive until you reach Woolshed Creek Road on left (about 10 km from Marburg)
Then: Turn left into Woolshed Creek Road, drive for 2-3 km and then turn right at the sign up the steep rise of Mountain Scrub Road. Drive carefully. The grid is about 2 km along, and we will meet about 300 m past it on the roadside.
Please feel free to invite friends to this or any future walks.
