The Friends of Eastern Otways officially launched its new website and a revised edition of the guide, formerly called A Guide to Walks in the Angahook-Lorne State Park, at the Distillery Creek picnic ground late last month.
FEO president Peter Crowcroft acknowledged the financial help from the Geelong Community Foundation and Rapid Ascent that made the website – www.feo.org.au – possible. Angair played its part by auspicing the FEO grant application to the foundation.
A walk on the Distillery Creek Nature Trail had everyone using their phones to test the newly installed QR codes on the signage that allowed access to loads of information about the surrounding environment. The trail is one of the 38 walks that feature in A Guide to Walks in the Great Otway National Park. FEO hopes to install more QR codes on other listed walks in the future.
