The walk will start at 08:00 from the STEP block at the Arboretum. To save the $2.00/hour parking fee at the main carpark at the visitors centre, park at the STEP carpark.  Parking for STEP just means using the overflow carpark – across the road from the main car park, but parking as far away as possible from the Visitors Centre, ie next to STEP (Forest 20). To get there drive past the main car park and take the first right (a dirt road), which heads off towards the works area. After about 70 metres there is a fainter track to the right which leads to the lower level of the overflow car park. Park near a small pond and rock pile.  There will be other cars there.  Here is a link to a map of the Arboretum, showing the STEP (Forest 20), the overflow car park and the track down to the works area:



The walk will take a couple of hours. Water, sun hat and good walking shoes will be required. No need to book, just turn up. For those interested, the walk will finish with a visit to the café for chat and appropriate refreshments.
