Monash Valley

Tuesday 28 January 2021

Last summer the Scoparia was disappointing, but the signs were much more promising this year. The planned location was Monash Valley an unofficial name of a spot below the mountain of that name. After a number of years using different approach routes, I now have the least scrubby way of getting there. The start is over Wombat Moor which has lots of attractive Boronia in flower at this time of year along with Epacris.

Fortunately, a bush with colourful flowers was observed at the start of the walk, which gave us hope and this was born out when the valley was reached.
