The Angair track walk in February was basically that described as walk 24 in the Guide to Walks in the Angahook Lorne State Park produced by the Friends of the Eastern Otways and Parks Victoria.  It was extended by starting at the Lorne Pier and following the Tramway Track to the mouth of the St George River. On this initial part of the walk there are numerous signs describing the history of the early timber industry and tramways of the area.

Where the track diverges beside Cherrytree Creek a koala was spotted perched high up in a manna gum. Lunch was enjoyed under a large tree beside the St Georges River just past a bowerbird’s bower scattered with bright blue bits and pieces.

Returning  using the track beside the St George River we came across a family collecting bush food in 2 large baskets namely blackberries and the red berries from the Prickly Currant-bush.

To arrive at the Lorne Pier by a different route, the track to Teddy’s Lookout was taken and after feasting on the view from the top the party took the 4 wheel track down past the caravan park back to the start.
