See below for our guidelines for walkers and details of how we grade our walks.

Guidelines for Walkers

  • For safety reasons and the enjoyment of walkers, numbers are limited
  • Bushwalking can be hazardous: we usually walk on unsealed, uneven surfaces which may slope and be slippery or loose; insects may bite or sting; snakes are rare but may be seen
  • If you are an inexperienced bushwalker or have a medical condition which could affect your walk, please discuss with your leader prior to departure
  • Wear strong, comfortable, enclosed footwear with a non-slippery sole
  • Bring plenty of water, appropriate food, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, insect repellent and wet weather gear if necessary
  • Dispose of any rubbish in a thoughtful manner
  • Only trained assistance dogs are allowed on our walks

Grades of Walks

All our walks are grade 2 or 3 according to the Australian Walking Track Grading System and are usually less than 10 km:

  • Grade 2 (easy) – no bushwalking experience required. The track is hardened or compacted surface and may have a gentle hill section or sections and occasional steps.
  • Grade 3 (moderate) – suitable for most ages and fitness levels. Some bushwalking experience recommended. Tracks may have short steep hill sections, a rough surface and many steps.
