An important function provided by the Friends is the organising and conduct of Group Walks. These are invariably pleasant and popular and one is planned for every month with the exception of the three hot summer months (Dec. Jan. Feb)
These walks are intended mainly for members, however, any non-member who would like to join us are welcome but should contact the appropriate leader to ensure that space is available. Participants park their cars where the walk finishes. They are transported, as a group (by bus) to the start of the walk and then walk back to their cars.
* Please note:
All walks start at 9 am – so please be at the parking spot before 9.00 am!
Check details in the latest newsletter through the year as changes may need to be made nearer to particular walk dates.
Important - please phone your leader a few days before the walk to let them know that you are coming. This helps judge the size of bus required.
Walk fees are $5 for members, $10 visitors – these help pay for the bus & insurance.
Always bring drinking water, and a snack is good too. Please dress for the weather.
We will bring Shirts, Guidebooks, Maps etc. for purchase – ask your walk leader if there is something particular that you would like.
