In the month of June 2021, National Parks and Wildlife Service will be showcasing Mount Remarkable National Park as part of its Park of the Month program. Numerous free events have been planned to cater for a variety of interests.
Focusing on early pastoral history, you are invited to join the Friends of Mount Remarkable on a heritage walk of Baroota ruins and cemetery. You will gain insights into what life was like in the 1800s. The walk departs from the ruins at 10am on Sunday the 13th. Head to their website to register your spot.
For those keen on a bit of an adventure, join the WEA Ramblers Bushwalking Club for a 7-kilometre Willowie Forest walk on Monday the 14th. Bookings can be made by calling Trevor on 0413 433 725.
