Great walk today around the Gorge waterway area in Victoria, across the Selkirk Trestle, through Chinatown and back over the Blue Bridge. Hope the map is clear enough and the pics entertaining. Good weather again. -- DeNNis.
Parked the cars at Banfield Park off Craigflower Rd (top left), across the Selkirk Trestle, stopped
in Chinatown for lunch, then across the Blue Bridge and back along the Galloping Goose Trail to the park.
