|28 Oct, Fri 10:19AM||Colour Walk Series : Campbells Rhododendron Garden in Blackheath|
|(DRAFT - do not publish yet) To avoid the crowd in Rhododendron Festival on the first Saturday of November, we will visit Blackheath for it's wonderful display of Rhododendrons and Azaleas. I have also noticed in the previous years, rhododendrons bloom much earlier than the official Rhododendron Festival date. Start with a coffee in one of Blackheath's fabulous cafes. Visit
Campbell Rhododendron Gardens. Have a pie for lunch in a much loved pie shop in Blackheath before heading home.

|18 Nov, Fri 10:15AM||Colour walk series: Mt Penang Gardens, sculptures and cascading waterways|
|Our visit marks the 18th anniversary of Mt Penang Gardens.
Opened in November 2003, Mt Penang Gardens is considered an enduring and radical contribution to public garden design in Australia. Its distinctive design by Anton James sets it apart from the traditional botanical garden. His garden within a garden produces an understated landscape that is less manicured and in a constant state of being. It continues to evolve today.
12 unique garden rooms, sculptures and cascading waterways.

|2 Dec, Fri 10:02AM||Leichardt Historic Walk|
|(SWAG) Bob R.|
|(DRAFT - do not publish yet) RSVP only accepted from 2 weeks prior to 7 pm the day before event. Join us for a Historic tour of Leichhardt. There are 17 points of interest, including Pioneers Memorial Park. Pioneers Memorial Park was formally the Balmain Cemetery. The site received over 10,000 burials of 24 different religious denominations. All but 126 of the burials occurred before December 1908. The Cemetery was renamed Pioneers Memorial Park in 1941 as a lasting tribute to the pioneers of the district and as a place of quiet recreation and enjoyment for future generations. The park has a memorial to the service people of Leichhardt who lost their lives in World War 1 (1914 – 1919) and the Bicentennial Rotunda. View|
|6 Jan, Fri 10:01AM||Short summer walks: Cooper Park|
|(DRAFT - do not publish yet) Cooper Park is a large bushland reserve with many walking tracks and recreational facilities available. Cooper Park's worth as a recreation area was recognised as far back as 1885 when the Government was asked to purchase land from the Cooper Estate for recreational purposes. It was not until 1913 that Sir William Cooper agreed to give the whole of the gully from Victoria Road, Bellevue Hill to Manning Road, Double Bay to the Council as a park. Subsequent additions over the years have brought the Park up to its present area of 38 acres (15 ha.) The creek running through the Park is largely natural and follows the line of a volcanic dyke of the Jurassic age while the hillsides support a wide variety of native trees and shrubs. Development over the years included extensive walking tracks/paths, with shelter sheds built and picnic areas laid out. View|
