    • They are partial extracts from two forms of report. As a volunteer, I check-list tracks and trails regarding whether they are suitable for promotion, accept invitations to investigate, initiate explorations and draw conclusions regarding suitability for various forms of recreational use. As an employee, I make specific recommendations for improvement. Some readers might be interested in visiting these places. I don’t see any need to wait for Council to share them. I plan to put them all up over time to get people to value and want to care for them. I am now working on various Strathbogie Shire tours as well. There will be self-drive tours, cycling tours, historic pub tours, birding tours and more. I am getting to meet some very interesting people, visit some beautiful places and yesterday I had tours of two remarkable buildings, one a modern architectural pleasure (Fowles Winery) and the other an historic renovated masterpiece (Harvest Home Avenel) and their gardens. Both highly recommended. The whole experience is a bit surreal, but I am keen to keep going with the flow.
