 "OVER THE HILLS BUSHWALKING GROUP"
 

The trip to Newcastle was cancelled, as Oma’s Kitchen wasn’t open – they now have a stall at Newcastle Farmers’ Market on Sundays.  Restaurant is only open Thursday, Friday & Saturday.  We may do this trip one Thursday – let me know if interested.

On Sunday 31/3/2019-Monday 1/4/2019 we had our 2 days in the Blue Mountains.  We did the Charles Darwin Walk to Wentworth Falls lookout, enjoyed lunch at a cafĂ© in Wentworth Falls and then drove to Hampton and stayed at the refurbished Halfway House Hotel.  After an enjoyable evening and breakfast we went to the pine forest searching for mushrooms.  We saw lots of mushrooms but, despite all the recent rain, we did not find any of the edible chanterelle variety we normally pick.

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 26/4/19 if coming on this walk. 

On Sunday, 26/5/2019, we will walk at West Head in Ku-Ring-Gai National Park.  Meet at 10:00 AM at the parking area for the Salvation Loop Trail (an easy 4 km walk).  Park entry fee is $12 per vehicle (or bring your NP Pass).  Bring a picnic lunch. Please phone Alena by 24/5/2019 if coming on this walk (0418633092).

On Sunday, 23/6/2019, we will do the Bridge to Bridge Loop at Jamisontown (part of the 570 km Great River Walk).  We will only do a 7 km easy loop walk.  Meet at carpark behind Coffee Club, 78 Tench Avenue, Jamisontown.  We will have lunch at the Coffee Club after the walk. Please phone Ella by 21/6/2019 if coming on this walk.

Other walks will be on 21/7/2019 & 1/9/2019.  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 (4/11/201911/11/2019).  If interested please advise ASAP, as accommodation is limited
