Walking Group

The walking group meet for walks on the 3rd Thursday of the month.  Since Covid restrictions limited the areas we were comfortable to travel to for our activity, we have been enjoying walks in the local neighbourhood.  We are fortunate to have lots of parkland in Monash and Boroondara. We car share to a venue, walk for approximately 3 - 5kms, enjoy a coffee at a local cafe and walk back to our cars.

Upcoming Walk

  • We will not be able to meet up for a walk this month due to the restrictions. Hopefully many of you are getting out walking to enjoy the spring weather and wattles out in flower.

Past Walks

  • Thursday 19th August – Meet in Wattle Park car Park, 1012 Riversdale Rd, Surrey Hills at 10 am. Enter the car park from Monsborough Drive (Melways map 60 J2).  We will walk in groups of 2 to comply with current restrictions.
  • On Thursday July 15th the Walking Group, joined by a small dog, enjoyed a pleasant walk, before Lockdown 5, along Gardiners Creek Reserve from Bennetswood Bowling Club to Highbury Rd. We found a welcoming coffee shop there and were joined by another member.
