Last walk

Saturday July 4 20 walkers became 18, became 16, became 15, became 9! Some cancellations, one a bit wobbly on the day and then 6 opted for the shorter version at the end. Cool drizzle to start, but became a brilliant winter's day. Great creek walking, forest, upper harbour, views and a good workout all round. Thanks all.

Check out the great walks planned for the rest of 2020

Please remember this is a guide only. Latest walks information are listed on this page in the week prior to the walk.

We are always looking for new walk ideas. If you know a great walk, please sent it to Garry.

Please check out the following guidance.
(7 July)

Hi Everyone,
Based on the current guidelines we are now able conduct outdoor activities such as walking. Outdoor gatherings are still restricted to 20 people. Club activities will be conducted within the following guidelines:
1. We will work strictly within the NSW government guidelines and rules. Our approach will adapt as the easing of restrictions goes through the stages.
2. Arrangements for walks revert to our normal processes.
3. We will not limit the number of walkers interested in a particular walk except for normal safety issues.
4. If you are interested in a walk you need to post your name on the website by Thursday night. This will give the leader sufficient notice to finalise any planning issues.
5. We will continue to do walks that do not entail car shuffling until the restriction are further reduced.
6. It is still a personal choice whether to participate or not.
7. The walks program for the next six months is available from this website.

I look forward to seeing you on the track or at our AGM,

Upcoming Events

We have booked Abernethy House in the Hunter Valley for our weekend away on 14, 15, 16 August. Further details on arrangements will be forthcoming.
