While it might seem that the only place we’ve been lately is Warren, there is always something to see whenever we walk or kayak here. We did a walk in West Warren, a half loop. We took the centre path up the hill and then turned left down the first fire track which has noContinue reading “No-name fire track”
We enjoyed the full North Warren loop experience on Sunday. It’s a lovely 8.8km walk through eucalypts, pine forests and at the moment, water. We went clockwise and only got wet socks in the last 15 minutes. Our last walk here was in May with less puddles and more funghi.
A month or so ago we took a walk at Warren Reservoir (part of the North Warren Reservoir Reserve Loop) as it was too chilly for kayaking. We saw a lot of mushrooms and a few mushroom pickers – hope they knew what they were doing…

There was a lot of mud but seemed to be more birds around, including plovers fighting each other and a number of pelicans. The SA government is upgrading facilities but according toContinue reading “Warren update”
As novice kayakers it’s great to have the Warren Reservoir close by for easy kayaking practice. No waves, currents, or bitey water-dwelling wildlife. And some great views.

Even with some areas out of bounds to kayakers, there is still plenty of space. Close to the road you do hear traffic noise, but it didn’t seem to worry the birdsContinue reading “A new view of Warren Reservoir”
Our last walk for 2020 was at Warren. It was a public holiday so the car park was full, but everyone was fishing or kayaking or both. We didn’t see many other people while walking. For this visit we tried one of the fire trails through the middle of the reserve, which was about 3.5k.
A beautiful sunny winter’s day was perfect for a first visit to Warren Reservoir. We tried the West Warren Loop (5.5 km). The longer hike is the North Warren loop which is 8.8 km. As we walked we noticed a number of fire trails which would be worth exploring, and which also provide an optionContinue reading “Warren Reservoir – Winter”
