Don't worry about your waist line. A few leaders would put on walks of various lengths and difficulties before and after the feast. Examples are as below:
1. Walk from Cowan to Crosslands Reserve
2. Walk from Mt. Kurring-gai Station
3. Walk from Crosslands Reserve to Berowra Station
4. Walk from Crosslands Reserve to Mt. Kurring-gai Station
Or you can simply drive to the Reserve.  Distance from your home is not an excuse. You can camp there even!!
The picnic is self-catered. Bring a plate to share. You can choose to make a note donation instead of bringing a plate. You can do both as money raised will go to NPA. Please mention if you will be bringing a plate as we don't want to end up with just Money but no food.
