Mark G.
Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longSlow pace | A trip where the leader will set an easy pace.From Neates Glen after sunset we will descend into the world of the night creatures and walk through the Grand Canyon, exiting at Evans Lookout Track. The prime reason for doing this walk is to see the amazing displays of glow worms which leave the colony in the Glowworm tunnel for dead with their brightness and sheer numbers. Plus we might see possums, gliders, the odd frog and experience this world heritage walk in a completely different way. People doing this walk are encouraged to do the walk to Mt Victoria beforehand and to stay in the mountains to avoid the long drive home. Care is needed walking in the dark and a good torch is essential.

Leader: Fiona Thompson

We'll meet at the El Alamein Fountain on Macleay Street, Potts Point, near Kings Cross Station at 10.30am. We will walk along Victoria Street to the Woolloomooloo finger wharf. The route to the wharf is down the McElhone stairs which has 100 stone steps. (A level alternative route can be taken if stairs are a problem so let me know in your reply). We’ll  walk up a few steps to inspect the progress on the extensions to the Art Gallery of NSW before walking into the Botanic Gardens. After taking in the spring beauty of the gardens, we’ll walk along the foreshore past the Opera House, Circular Quay, Campbell Cove, Walsh Bay and its sculptures, and have a picnic lunch together at Barangaroo Park. There will be time to explore the park and do some rock hopping to observe how the sandstone blocks are weathering to provide habitat for marine and bird life. Our walk finishes at Darling Quarter where we can enjoy a drink together from one of the cafes before catching the F4 ferry back to Circular Quay. This is a leisurely walk with a few stairs and suitable for all levels of fitness. The purpose is to enjoy the beauty of our harbour in good company. I won’t be checking my watch or heart rate. There are plenty of ‘get out’ places along the route if needed. Please bring a picnic lunch and water. Toilets, coffee, food, and ice cream are available at many places along the route.

Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPublic Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.The Great North walk is a mammoth multi-day hike and at 250 km, it’s not for the faint-hearted. Created in 1988 to celebrate Australia’s bicentenary, the walk links Sydney with the Hunter Valley and Newcastle. It is a one-stop-shop for some of the best scenery New South Wales has to offer. To make it more convenient, we will walk in sections. Public transport is available for the first few sections. Subsequent sections will mostly require car transport. A Certificate of Completion will be awarded to walkers who attend all sections. Today we walk Section 1 : Macquarie Place to North Ryde. The first segment starts from Macquarie Place, corner of Bridge and Loftus Street. The enjoyable walk takes into history, seaview, grand houses, gardens, and churches. Kookaburras, lorikeets, boats, orchids, grand trees and plants were seen along the way. This walk involves a ferry ride. The second segment is a lovely bush track along the Lane Cove River. Cormarants, herons, brush turkey, lorikeets and other birds are expected to be seen. Wildflowers abound. Salt Marsh, sandstone caves, trees  and plants are all very lovely. Slippery sections.
