Spring season is the season of new beginnings, with it brings the blooming flowers. It will be a nice season to start visiting gardens or go for nature walk. The Rock Correa Interpretive walking track has a nice trail with panoramic scenery of Dookie hills.

The Rock Correa walk is a collaboration between the Tallis Family, Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation and Goulburn Broken CMA, made possible through funding from the National Landcare Programme. There are 11 interpretive signage along the way in order to raise awareness of the Yorta Yorta people as the traditional owners, highlighting the grassy woodland's important flora and fauna species and describe early European settlement in this region.

A brief history of Yorta Yorta country, excerpt from Broken Goulburn site:
Yorta Yorta country radiates out from the Murray River on both sides in all compass directions, roughly from Cohuna in the west to just outside Albury/Wodonga in the east to a northerly point in NSW approximately 20-30 km past Finley and extends south into Victoria just short of Nagambie. Yorta Yorta region includes the lower Goulburn river, and towns such as Echuca, Cohuna, Shepparton, Benalla, Corowa, Wangaratta, Glenrowan, Rutherglen, Chiltern, Wahgunyah, Thoona, and Violet Town.

The people of the Yorta Yorta Nation are comprised of 8 different clan groups, where the Yorta Yorta language is spoken by all of the Yorta Yorta clans, including the Kailtheban, Wollithiga, Moira, Ulupna, Bangerang, Kwat Kwat, Yalaba Yalaba and Ngurai-illiam-wurrung clans. The Yorta Yorta Nation is comprised of peoples with undeniable bloodlines to the Original Ancestors of the Land of the Yorta Yorta Nation. These bloodlines link our past, present and future to one another, with traditional laws, customs, beliefs and sovereignty intact.

The view from Dookie Hills is especially breathtaking in spring when the surrounding canola fields bloom. Follow Tallis Wine Facebook for updates.

Rocky Trail


It is advisable to wear sturdy footwear and watch your steps as certain parts of the track can be rocky. Proper walking attire is recommended. Bring along water, hat and sunscreen. Although spring is mostly cooling weather, our walk in the last spring was quite warm. It felt like summer weather. Do watch out for snakes in warmer months.
