Maryburn Stream Walkway ( Simons Hill )          Sunday 1st May


On Sunday 1st May five trampers left Timaru at eight o’clock and headed for the McKenzie country, at Fairlie we stopped to pick up a new member and then set off for the Maryburn Walkway, initially our destination was going to be Mt Mary but that will have to wait for another day. Maryburn Stream walk turned into a very good second choice as it was pleasant to walk along the stream and occasionally  look for trout. We walked approximately seven Kms to the base of Simons Hill where we enjoyed our lunch sitting amongst  the golden willows, time didn’t allow us to venture on to Simons Hill so we retraced our steps back to our vehicles. The nice autumn day was enjoyed by Catherine, Llara, Jim, Ross, Barry and David.
