Babbington Hill Circuit named after Richard Babbington, an ex-convict who settled the nearby Glenlyon Station lease and built the region’s first hotel . The Messmate and Manna Gum forest are truly impressive. The distance was greater than the planned 8 kms but we all made it back. We walked here on June 8 2016. If you look in the Archives you can compare the photos at the log and walking through the forest.
Thanks Alan for leading the walk.
