Tuesday, November 15, 2016 – 15.58 km
I left before the kids got up this morning. Today’s walk was average, forests and farmland, no signage issues. The Ironbarks picnic area was pleasant, with picnic tables and fire rings beside the road.
I arrived at Chookarloo Campground around 12:00 PM. It contains a one-walled shelter, covered picnic areas, a toilet, plenty of space and a very bold bird after human food. A permit is required for overnight stays, so I decided to make the ~3 km round trip to Forest Headquarters to obtain one and pay for the Rocky Creek campsite. A kiosk had interesting info about the forest reserve and various stages of development the forests go through.
