Walking group

WALKING GROUP – Heather 9844 1897 or 0432 261 011)

As of 21 May 2020 Group walks recommenced with a Ruffey Lake park walk, as pandemic restrictions have been reduced.  As most other club activities are still on hold, walks will be scheduled more frequently than previously in the near future.

Below are details for our next three scheduled group walks.

Next week 11th June will be – Finns Reserve (Melways 33 B4) Meet at carpark Duncan St. Templestowe. Walk over the suspension bridge and turn right towards Westerfolds Park to the Yarra River Observation Platform.    Morning tea at Carlucci’s.

We look forward to seeing you all again and with luck the weather will stay beautiful as the last couple of weeks have been.


Thursday 18th June – Montmorency Park.    Meet at the 1st car park off Para St near the Rattray Rd intersection.   Morning tea is BYO and could be good to also bring a seat.

There is a choice of 2 walks, you can choose on the day.

The first is longer and has a hilly section.

The second is shorter and avoids the hill.

Thursday 25th June – We were planning to walk from Edendale Farm in Eltham but they are closed till further notice.  So we suggest meeting at nearby NORTH ELTHAM ADVENTURE PARK Wattletree Rd North Eltham  for a walk towards Diamond Creek.  Bring your own morning tea.
