Stawell has a lot to offer the field naturalist.

This trip includes visits to areas of interest including Big Hill which overlooks the region—a good place to get our bearings; Pleasant Creek, an original diggings and town site area, home to many birds and other species; Lake Lonsdale, a significant First Nation cultural area, which comprises a shallow sand lake surrounded by farmland and lightly treed forest, including Greenhole Reserve; Deep Lead Flora and Fauna Reserve and the Deep Lead ironbark forest which are fantastic for wildflowers; Halls Gap and also Heatherlie Quarry, areas rich in history, geology and wildflowers.

The excursion runs from Friday afternoon and concludes at lunchtime Sunday.

For this trip, you will need to book your own accommodation. We can meet for pub dinners or there are picnic facilities at Cato Park just across from the Central Park, home of the Stawell Gift.
