Patersonia Rivulet - Saturday 10th October 2020

Andrew Madden has lived in the foothills of Mt. Arthur for many years, and loves to share the rugged beauty of nearby bushland with fellow walkers. Patersonia Rivulet starts near the north-east shoulder of Mt. Arthur, and follows south-east around the flank of the mountain through rugged, heavily forested terrain. However, Andrew's aim is to make this an easier and enjoyable walk near the last big trees and myrtles of the forest valley.
While the walk is rated easy, it is not suited to strollers and wheelchairs, but should be suitable for people of moderate fitness who can keep up a leisurely pace.

Meeting Times and Places:
If you are interested in going on this walk, please phone your walk leader, Andrew Madden, ph. 6399 3315 (evenings - leave a message and a number if phone is not answered) book in.
The departure time is 10 am from the car park behind the former Commonwealth Bank at Newstead - access off David St. at Zap Fitness approx. 50 metres from the Elphin Rd. traffic lights.
As this is a bush location without a specific car park, you would need to arrange any alternative meeting place and time with the walk leader.

The walk is accessed from Launceston via Tasman Highway to Nunamara (23 km) and left into Patersonia Road which is followed for roughly 10 km. About 35 minutes drive all up.

No warnings apart from a reminder that weather in Tasmania can still be very changeable in October, so warm clothing, sensible shoes and a raincoat should be carried.
