Description

From the Caltex Service Station at the corner of Stawell Road, the Henty Highway, Western Highway and Golf Course Road, take the Henty Highway south. The track should be on the right side of the road for a couple of hundred kilometres. After passing a few industrial sites, and once nearing the bend, the track will cross the Henty Highway to the left side of the road. The track will travel through trees in a natural like environment passing residential houses. The track will also pass the Haven shop if you would like a drink along the way, the local Primary School and the Haven Hall. There are quite a few paddocks with cattle and sheep that can add to the scenery of the walk. After passing the majority of houses, the track will take you out over the Burnt Creek bridge before coming to a conclusion at McKenzie Creek. From here, simply retrace your steps back to the start or arrange to be picked up.
