    1. Hi, I just recently did the lerderderg track section of the great dividing trail and am looking at doing the eureka track/wallaby track hike to Daylesford. This wallaby track hike seems to cover the same trail but is 7 kms shorter. Is this the same hike?

    3. I’m slowly hiking the GDT. So far I’ve walked from Mt Buninyong to Ballarat and another day walked Ballarat to Creswick. I’m using public transport to and from Melbourne though may drive for later sections.
      I have the GDT guidebook and have downloaded the Track from the GDT organisiation onto my phone. Valuable though these are, the track is so well marked that I rarely consulted my maps from necessity. I am enjoying the challenge of the long walks and looking forward with trepidation and excitement to the next section, Creswick to Daylesford, where I am planning to camp along the way. Hopefully will be able to do this in the next few weeks.
