Golden Circuit

Hike MacMohans Goldfield Circuit or Upper Yarra Goldfields

One of the initial walks I did when in Melbourne was the MacMohans Goldfield Circuit walk. It was hard for me as I was not hiking too much back in those days. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful walk with a group of people I had met during a meetup.
