Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longFirst time friendly | A trip that is perfect for most new members (assuming you have a reasonable level of fitness)This walk is along the first part of the Bonnum Pic Track. Leaving the fire trail there are a couple of steep gullies to negotiate before joining an old fire trail and then a bush track leading to the escarpment. Wildflowers are prolific and the view spectacular. Walk starts at Wanganderry Fire Trail yards. Steep rough track slippery creek crossing, fallen trees, unfenced cliff edges.

Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(DRAFT - do not publish yet) Nothing says summer in Sydney like a street of Jacaranda trees in full bloom. As if Sydney wasn’t already the prettiest city in Australia, we find ourselves living in nothing short of a magical, lavender coloured wonderland. Let's start with the Royal Botanical Garden, cross the Harbour Bridge, and explore the streets of suburbs like Lavender Bay and Wollstonecraft. Jointly led by Kevin Cliffe and Esther. No need to contact leader, but email RSVP is appreciated. View

The final day is a full pack walk back up the hill to the cars (sigh!). A walk that is short in distance but rugged in nature.
