Bushwalking Group


On Sunday, 4/11/2018, we walked along the Cooks River Track from Canterbury to Tempe.  After the walk we had lunch at the Concordia Club.

On Sunday, 9/12/2018, we had our end-of-year walk.  We walked around Dee Why Lagoon and afterwards had lunch at Das Bierhaus, Mona Vale.

On Sunday, 24/2/2019, we will meet at Hornsby station in time to catch the 8:56 AM train to Hamilton, then rail bus to Newcastle (arriving 11:04 AM).  We will walk around to Nobbys Beach and Newcastle Beach and then go to Oma’s Kitchen for lunch about 1:00 PM.  We will probably catch the 2:53 PM bus from Newcastle and 2:55 PM train back to Hornsby (arriving 4:49 PM). Please phone Ella by 22/2/2019 if coming on this walk (as I need to advise numbers for lunch).

On Sunday 31/3/19-Monday 1/4/2019 we will have our trip to the Blue Mountains.  On Sunday we will meet at 10:00 AM at the carpark in Sir Burrell Drive, Wentworth Falls, for car shuttle back to Wilson Park on Falls Road.  We will do the Charles Darwin Walk from Wilsons Park to Wentworth Falls lookout.  Bring morning tea and drinks with you on the walk.  We will then have lunch in one of the cafes in Wentworth Falls before driving to Hampton. Seven people have already indicated they will be coming to Hampton.

Several rooms have been reserved at the Hampton Halfway House Hotel for the Sunday night.  Accommodation has been completely updated – all deluxe queen rooms with balconies.  Cost is $110 per room.  If you do not wish to stay overnight at Hampton you can still come for the walk and lunch, which should finish before 3 PM.  If you do not wish to go on the bushwalk you can still come to the Hampton Halfway House Hotel for the night and go mushrooming with us on the Monday morning.

Phone by 22/3/2019 if you require accommodation at the Hampton Halfway House Hotel. Or phone by 28/3/2019 if you are just coming on the walk.

On Sunday, 28/4/2019, we will walk in Fagan Park, Galston.  Meet at 10:00 AM in the parking area inside the main entrance on Arcadia Road.  N.B. there is an entry fee of $5 per car.  After the walk we will have a BBQ lunch. Please phone Ella by 26/4/2019 if coming on this walk.

Other walks will be on 26/5/2019 & 23/6/2019.  Please mark these dates in your diary now and keep them free so that you can join us on our walks.  Arrangements are also being made for a week in Kangaroo Valley (4/11/19-11/11/2019).  If interested in this trip please advise ASAP, as accommodation is limited.
