This is an easy walk taking you right through the CBD to the scenic Wimmera River. It is able to be completed in your lunch hour to get your 30mins exercise per day.
This walk starts right in the city centre at the Horsham Post Office in Firebrace Street. From here the walk is a straight 2.22 km return along Firebrace Street. Along the way you may see the various shops Horsham has to offer along with some surprise attractions and places of interest. You may like to sit down and enjoy the sights of the river at the end of Firebrace Street or even walk a little further along the river track.
To enable enough time to enjoy your walk there are a few car parking options. In McLachlan Street there are 4hr parks both behind Spotlight and the Horsham Regional Library. If you decide to start your walk at the river, car parking should be freely available and unrestricted.
If not stopping to take in the attractions it should take around 30 mins. If wishing to take in all of the attractions and possibly some shopping along the way, allow a couple of hours.
