Richards Tramline - anybody done it?

Postby dougal73 » Fri 22 Jul, 2016 1:47 pm

Hi all

As per subject, the Richards Tramline (near Warburton). Given how much I have enjoyed the Walk into History nearby I thought this could be a good one to try out. Information seems quite scant though. So, has anyone done it? Any feedback, hints, tips etc would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Yeah did the track about 12 months ago. Did it as a out and in walk. OK, but nothing to write home about. Much prefer the other WIH walks and others around Poweltown. Glad I did it tho, the mine/quarry that we used a turnaround point was interesting. Easy track to follow. If I do it again is turn it into loop or a car shuffle.

Cheers

Hi folks, walked the length of Richard's Tramline a few days ago, starting at Big Pat's Creek Picnic Area and returning via Mississippi Creek Road. Trail in good condition, with only the odd toppled tree to be traversed. Largely dry underfoot, but all creeks running (very) well (and probably more so now what with significant rainfall in the ranges this week). Plenty of bird life about, with Common Cicadabird, Olive-backed Oriole, Super Lyrebird, Gang-gang Cockatoo, Brush Cuckoo and Satin Flycatcher the highlights. For those unfamiliar(ish) with the area - the tramline would make a great segment for an overnight loop via the Ada Tree, Starlings Gap and the main Walk Into History section between the latter and Big Pat's Creek.
