  • Markets: Girgarre market day is 2nd Sunday of the month.
  • For the gravel aficionados: This route passes Mt Scobie Quarry, located NE of corner of Wigg and Webb Roads. This quarry is the source of the bright white gravel you will see on your routes in the middle and northern parts of the GABCY Network. Scobie mudstone breaks down into fine white dust so it is usually a good idea to stop for a drink break on the odd occasion a vehicle approaches instead of trying to ride on through the trailing dust cloud.
