Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPhotography | A trip that has a strong focus on encouraging people to capture photographs.Spring comes early to the Hawkesbury region and I expect this walk to be full of pre-Spring blossoms as we pass through various habitats on this scenic and interesting circuit. One of the highlights is a sidetrip to a place of great cultural significance which won't fail to impress you!

Cycle | A cycling tripSocial | A trip where people will be encouraged to interact and chat with each other.Public Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.A scenic and relaxed pace ride on cycle paths and cycle routes around the foreshore. Passing through historical properties, then cross over on the punt. Return to the start over John Whitton Bridge. There are train stations along the way if you prefer a shorter ride or getting tired. Unfortunately, riding an e-bike on this trip will mean that you are not covered under NPA club insurance; Bushwalking Australia is working to see if it can be covered for future trips. Mostly on cycle paths, but some road crossings with vehicle traffic. Be aware of other track users, debris /damage/uneven path, and possible mechanical failers. Limit: 10. View
