Walk Description

This trail will take you through the old river gum trees beside the Murray River and passes by farming properties. Local Aboriginal artist Tommy McRae (c.1835– 1901) would wander this area and lived at Lake Moodemere for a number of years. At the end of Kilborn road is the Historic John Foord Pioneer Cemetery. A plaque commemorates the centenary year of the burial of John Foord II (1819 - 1883). He was the pioneer of the Wahgunyah Run and the township developed on his property. Foord named his 30,000 acre property Wahgunyah which was said to be a Whroo, the local Indigenous people’s name for ‘big camp’.
