Don't worry about your waistline. 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. Kuring-gai Station 3. Walk from Crosslands Reserve to Berowra Station 4. Walk from Crosslands Reserve to Mt. Kuring-gai Station 5. Pack Walk from Hornsby and camp at Crosslands 6. Car camp at Crosslands Or you can simply drive to the Reserve. 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.
