Drouin Street Walks

As part of the recent Gardivalia Festival, several members of the Friends of Drouin’s Trees conducted three walks around some of the streets of Drouin, highlighting a few of our beautiful trees and some historic locations.

Feedback was very positive - “As always it was a delight.  Your hard work and dedication you, Peter, Wes and all your other helpers is fantastic. Imparting your knowledge on the local history, nature and wildlife of our gorgeous town shows what great town spirit Drouin has to offer.  Another amazing effort and I cannot wait for the next walk.”- thanks Karla
The shady ash in the Drouin Primary School grounds - what an asset!
Consideration is being given to conducting some future similar events. Drouin’s trees, parks, wetlands and reserves are indeed worth showing off.

The three walks were inspired by the work being done by the friends group who are producing a booklet that will contain detailed descriptions, maps and photographs of twelve such walks around the town. This project is being supported by the Baw Baw Shire and the Drouin and District Community Bank®. Layout and artwork is being done by Helen TimburyDesign of Drouin and the free booklet is expected to be available in the first half of next year.

Walking of course is good for the mind, body and soul – why not appreciate some of Drouin’s beautiful places at the same time?
