This Sunday (July 16) there will be a long and a short walk. The short walk will be led by Joy Clusker and will have a fungi focus. Meet as usual at the Community Centre in Templeton Street at 9.30 am. You can also meet the group at the Dog Rocks parking area at 9.45 am. See the walks page for more details.
The long walk will be led by Jeremy Holland. He has written the following update.
The route for this walk was checked a week ago and again last Sunday (9th).
Due to the wet conditions the section involving two crossings of Middleton Creek has been deleted (see photo below taken at proposed crossing point) and replaced with something safer.
The distance remains at 15 km which at 3km/hr should take 5 hours plus 1 hr for breaks over varied but interesting terrain with about 40%.being off-track. There is also one reasonably steep climb.
It is probably worth noting that similar to last year this is twice the distance of a normal fobif walk. Therefore be prepared for a solid but hopefully enjoyable day out.
Remember we meet at 9.00am in Templeton Street.
