AUSTRALIA - Warrumbungles - Fan Horizon Trail - HKE - september 2008



Fan’s horizon – 2 hours

It is steep ascent along a track with the buzz of insects. The track is mainly log steps. At times there are rock hewn steps amongst boulders. It eventually levels out and the walk follows a ridge. Many lizards were seen at this point. The first lookout is Fan’s Horizon, which was named after Fanny Gould 1902 to 2004. It is a panoramic view of sharply-cut mountains with greenery filling the bare rock gaps. The greenery is various dark shades of green laced with the yellow blossoms of wattles. Sit for awhile and enjoy the silence, the stillness of the wind and the murmur of insects and birds.
