Excursion to Mt Dryden @ Mt Dryden
Sep 23 @ 10:00 am

Meet at the junction of the western highway and the Glenorchy-Ledcourt rd (Mt Drummond quarry turnoff), or for those members coming from the south, at the entrance to the property at about 10.20 am.

Mt Dryden is geologically most interesting, as well as having a great view looking towards the Grampians proper. It is on private property so rsvping to Bill is most important.

Members of the Horsham lapidary club will also be joining us.
