Mark G.
Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(Fully Booked - Ask leader about waiting list) On this trip we will experience the best that the Bibbulmun Track has to offer in Western Australia. From the small township of Walpole, we will travel along a series of good tracks through the towering Tingle forests, colourful heathlands, beautiful beaches, granite peaks and through the towns of Peaceful Bay and Denmark where new supplies can be purchased, allowing for lighter packs. The tracks are well marked and make for easy walking. Halfway through the walk we will have a rest day in Denmark. At each campsite there is a hut which can be used as well as water supply, toilets and tables so this is hardly roughing it! The wildflowers at this time of the year are outstanding and you can expect to also see a fair amount of wildlife including seals, quokkas, wallabies and numerous birds to name a few. In short, this is a fabulous walk and one not to be missed. Limit: 17. View

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
Grade:2/6 Length 6km  150m Sydney Branch
(SWAG) Esther
Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(DRAFT - do not publish yet) Cooper Park is a large bushland reserve with many walking tracks and recreational facilities available.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
