Walks around the Oriental Claims

1. Ah Fongs Loop – 45 minutes return

Crossing the Dry Gully Bridge, this leisurely walk takes you to the site originally worked by Ah Fong in 1875. It was one of the most extensive and richest sites within the Oriental Claims.

2. Pioneer Claim Loop – 45 minutes return

The dominant feature of this walk is the rugged cliff faces, up to 30 metres in height, formed by hydraulic sluicing. Also along this walk you may see a variety of orchids (Pink Fingers and Wax Lip and the more common colonies of Spider, Sun and Donkey orchids) from late winter to early summer.

3. Oriental Claims to Omeo (or vice versa) – 2 hours return

This pleasant walk follows the Livingston Creek to Omeo/ Oriental Claims. Watch out for Swamp Wallabies and the colourful range of native birds (Crimson Rosellas, White-eared Honeyeaters, Eastern Yellow Robins, Superb Fairy-wrens and White-browed Scrubwrens) that can be seen in this area.
