Doing the Hoffman Walk

If you are near Lara (close to Geelong) and interested in plants, it is well worth taking time to stroll along the Hoffman Walk. This area runs beside Hovells creek and represents about forty years of work by one man, Kevin Hoffman, to beautify an area with Australian native plants.

These days there are more people assisting in maintaining the area and the City Geelong supports the project with some funding. There are many interesting plants with different flowers, foliage and texture and gradually some local indigenous species are infiltrating the plantings.
