Newcomers' Walk 19th May 2019

Come and try bushwalking with the Melbourne Women's Walking Club on a specially planned Newcomers' walk.
Share the experience with other newcomers and meet some friendly club members.
The walk is on Sunday 19th of May near Blackwood. All walking is on four-wheel drive tracks or well formed bush paths although some of it is uneven underfoot. Much of the walk is relatively flat along old water races surrounded by tall eucalypts and tree ferns. There is also a short steepish climb into a dry forest area. It's graded a moderate walk, around 4.5 hours of walking and suitable for reasonably fit women.
Bring a warm jumper, rain jacket, lunch and snacks, water bottle and sturdy footwear.
We will leave Melbourne by car at around 8:00am (driving approximately 1.5 hours) and return around 5:30pm. Carpooling will be organised.
Cost: Just a share of carpooling costs.

If you would like to join us on this walk and have not registered with the club as a prospective member, please contact Jane Matthews by email at or phone: 0423 165 259 or 9347 4881 by Tuesday 14th May to receive important information about the club.

Please note that it is optional to do a Newcomers' walk. If you prefer, simply contact Jane Matthews above for information about the club and upcoming walks and you will be welcome on any of the easier walks (not Medium-Hard (MH) or Hard (H) for your first walk please unless you are an experienced bushwalker).
