Thanks to all Maybe we should offer to do it all again one day .CD"s available . City folks were fascinated at the slide show and bush dance on Saturday Night to see close up, pictures of the old logging townships and tourist sites in the dam’s catchment such as the tunnel between the two branches of the Barwon and the place where the Otwaymills Post office stood . Walkers were treated to a fixed in time view of a huge sawdust pile and blacksmiths shop that had been abandoned 80 years ago at Henrys mill. Most of the participants got closer than they wanted to the highly carnivorous fauna in the form of leeches and black snails. Discussion on the long walk was lively on carbon cycles, seeding, fire, sawdust degradation (nothing grows on them for decades) and the associated matters of soil and water acidity; like how it would increase again if the areas weren’t logged.
