Meet at Gherang Gherang Bushland Reserve at 8.45 to sign in. The walk will start at 9 am.

We will walk down the Parks Victoria road to a T intersection to go left first as far as the gate then do a loop around to the left and return along the irrigation channel. We will then make our way back to the cars by taking the Parks Victoria track. At the cars we will have morning tea between 10.30 and 11am.

After this we will drive on to Brown Swamp Modewarre to look for water birds.

Go past the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie and onto the roundabout. Turn right at the roundabout onto Forest Rd. Travel approximately 11 kms until you see the parks sign on the left.
