* Report for June - Milson's Point to Wynyard

“Thank you to all those who attended the Probus walk for June 2021.

The walk this month started at Milson Point crossing the Harbour Bridge to Observatory Hill.

On Friday June 4th, 2021, fifteen (15) walkers attended the monthly walk. We set out from the Milson Point over the harbour bridge, with magic views of Sydney Harbour to Observatory Hill for a short break and a tour through the historic Observatory. We then walked down to Barangaroo Reserve along Walsh Bay, under the harbour bridge to Dawes Point. We lunched at The Rocks. The walk was 4.5km.  Returning to Wynyard for the trip home.

Well done to all, and what about the weather?

Ralph and Marie.

* November Report - Hawkesbury Visitor Information Centre

Thank you to all those who walked in November around the picturesque Richmond Streets.

On Friday November 6 2020, 19 walkers attended the Rouse Hill Probus monthly walk. We set out from the Hawkesbury Visitors Information Centre (opposite RAAF Base Richmond) towards the township of Richmond. The walking path passed through the magnificent arch way of trees leading into Richmond. We diverted down Bourke St to Francis St passing the flowering Jacarandas and the historical homes that are still standing (e.g. Benson House built in 1840s).  We turned back to town passing Richmond RSL and the panorama of the Hawksbury ridge. Richmond Park with its picket fence, provided a morning tea break and light entertainment. We were entertained by the council’s lawn-mower precision driving team in action. After a break we headed back to the start of our walk along March St, Moray St, and Windsor St back to the Hawkesbury Visitors Information Centre.

The walk covered approximately 6.5km.

Well done to all,

Thank-you.  Ralph and Marie.
