The Shepparton Adventure Club recently returned from a five-night stay at the quite small Nowa Nowa Caravan Park in east Gippsland.
After venturing to various locations in the past three years, 15 members headed with one group riding bicycles and one walking various forests.
SAC member Richard Graves said members completed the ride along East Gippsland Rail Trail across three days, traversing a vast amount of countryside.
‘‘The rail trail traverses quite a range of country from open farming land to dense forest and great views over the Snowy River flood plain as you approach Orbost,’’ he said.
Mr Graves said there were many options for the group when it came to walking and the decision of where to walk was made after arriving and with a little local knowledge and assistance.
‘‘Over the first three days, the three walkers (four walkers on day two) covered over 30thkm through a variety of country,’’ Mr Graves said.
The group wrapped up its adventure with members setting out on their own.
‘‘That night we all adjourned to the Nowa Nowa Hotel for an enjoyable dinner and (to) reminisce over the previous days’ activities,’’ Mr Graves said.
‘‘There were three birthdays celebrated over the week with cake and a musical candle and a lot of laughs and good humour.’’
Mr Graves said it was a great week away.
‘‘We look forward to next year’s outing, wherever that might be,’’ he said.
