Newcomers' Walk 23rd May 2021

Come and try bushwalking with the Melbourne Women's Walking Club on a specially planned Newcomers' walk.
Share the experience with other newcomers and meet some friendly club members.
The walk is on Sunday 23rd May in the Dandenongs. It's a circuit through a forest of tall Mountain Ash and stands of European Trees. The walk roams uphill and downhill but the terrain is not particularly steep. All walking is on formed walking tracks. It's graded a moderate walk, approximately 14km long, around 4 to 4.5 hours of walking (excluding breaks) and suitable for reasonably fit women.
Bring a warm jumper, rain jacket, lunch and snacks, a plastic bag to sit on, 1 litre drinking water and sturdy footwear. Walking poles will be useful if you have them.
We will leave Melbourne by car at around 8:00am (driving approximately 1.5 hours) and return around 5:30pm.
Carpooling is usually organised but is optional due to covid19 concerns.
Cost: Just a share of carpooling costs if carpooling.

If you would like to join us on this walk and have not registered with the club as a prospective member, please contact Jane Matthews by email at mwwcmembershipsec@hotmail.com by Monday 17th May to receive important information about the club.

Please note that it is optional to do a Newcomers' walk. If you prefer, simply contact Jane Matthews above for information about the club and upcoming walks and you will be welcome on any of the easier walks (not Medium-Hard (MH) or Hard (H) for your first walk please unless you are an experienced bushwalker).
