Walks

BUSHWALKS for 2015

Our walks are on Sundays, they are free and non-members are welcome. We meet at 9.30am outside 30 Templeton Street, Castlemaine (Continuing Ed.) and carpool to the start of the walk. Bring water, morning tea and lunch. Walks usually finish mid afternoon although the shorter March and October walks should finish by midday. Walks are cancelled on Total Fire Ban days in the area.
