Up a Lazy River

While thinking about mowing the lawn on sunday, I thought..Nah! I'd rather be riding.
So, headed down to Horsham for a catchup lunch. Then it was to be either a 1.2 hr slab ride home , or, the road less travelled...
I fired up the garmin62 and found some potential tracks leading north along the Wimmera River from Polkemmet bridge toward Wail State Forest
At the bridge I checked the tracks, you bewdy these look we go!

A bit snaggy for fishing

This looks better

Good spot with a fire and a few beers..

Some single wound through the trees

A steep drop down to the rivers edge

Several of these spots along here

By now it was well into roo O'clock so made for Dimboola, checked out Lochiel bridge area and found a few extra tracks to suss out, then home the back way.

Wimmera River

I am planning to following the Wimmera River from Natimuk to Lake Hindmarsh,I was thinking 2 days for a return ride.Camping on the river about half way,one day south to Natimuk and return then a day north and return.
Do you think this is practical and where approximately would be mid-way.?Time wise.

Autumn should be the best time when the river may be crossed.
