Conglomerate Gully, Central Victoria

Conglomerate Gully is a little known magnificent rocky gorge, at the south-east end of the Macedon Ranges, west of the town of Riddle's Creek, 70 km north of Melbourne.

An interesting loop walking track of about 3 km has been constructed by the local Shire in collaboration with the "Friends of Conglomerate Gully" community group.

The track passes by masses of conglomerate rock, estimated to be about 440 million years old, much older than the Macedon Ranges.

The main features along the walk are the viewing platforms, the rustic "half-way" log/bark shelter hut, and interesting messmate and peppermint bushland.

The track is steep and rocky in parts, and is amply signposted by green markers and other signs. The highest point reached is 500 m, the start is at 425 m.

I completed the walking loop on December 29, 2007, on a day when the temperature reached 40 degrees!
