Explore a section of the Plenty River and the picturesque Morang Wetlands in this walk through the Plenty Gorge parklands. Limit of 10 participants!
GRADE | LENGTH | TYPE: A moderate 10 km point-to-point walk mostly on unformed tracks with a few short steep sections.
ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: This walk through Plenty Gorge Park explores a section of the Plenty River before meandering through the Morang Wetlands. There’s river vistas and wetlands scenes to enjoy for almost the entirety of the walk. Large mobs of kangaroos can be spotted throughout the area along with a variety of wetlands birdlife.
