Walk Description

Take a leisurely walk beside ancient river red gums on the Murray River at Wahgunyah. The track winds along the river for about 2 kilometres and then veers off to pass the Wahgunyah Recreational Reserve where during the winter you may be able to watch a local game of AFL and netball being played. As you head back to the start of the track there is a substantial red gum at the bottom of Short Street known as the Mass Tree. The river redgum is the site of the first mass held by Dean Tierney of
Beechworth in the tent of Mrs. M.M. Burrowes. The plaque commemorating the event was placed on the tree by the local Catholic Women’s Guild.
