Charlie Miley Walking Track, Harrietville




These pix were taken on September 16 2012 along the Charlie Miley Walking Track, Harrietville, 400 km NE of Melbourne.

This 3 km (return) Track follows the Ovens River West Branch, passing Eucalypt forest.

It starts at the end of Charlie Miley Road (named after a world champion axeman from Harrietville) in Clarrie Keating Memorial Park and is flanked by earthern mounds, excavations, and rubble from the Chinese gold diggings.

The scenically located football oval is nearby.

The walk ends at Mill Rd, which was the original main street of the town during the gold rush era.
