Meet at Southern Cross Station
Southern Cross Station, Melbourne,
Have a relaxing train ride to Seymour with the weather warming up. A pub lunch, Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk and a walk along the Goulburn river.
GRADE | LENGTH | TYPE: Easy, approximately 7 km circuit walk on concrete, bitumen and gravel.
ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: Travel will be by train (car optional). On arrival at Seymour it is a 5 minute walk to our lunch stop, situated on Main Street across from the station, but we will have a quick look at a D3 steam loco in JW Elliot Reserve next to the station first. After lunch (1 hour 15 minutes) we will walk to the Goulburn River, via the Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk, then have a look at a historic log lock up and courthouse. We then go for a 5 km return walk along the Goulburn River Walking Track. The actual length of the walk will depend on how much time we have left after lunch and how long it takes us to get to the river. On our return walk to the station, on leaving the river track we will walk through Kings Park which is mostly a sports precinct.
