EASTER SUNDAY

WHITE RABBIT GALLERY

To celebrate Easter we will start and end at the White Rabbit Gallery in Chippendale. This interesting walk will take us by the Gehry Building, along the Goods Line and through Central Park Mall with it's hanging gardens. Should be fun.

There is on street parking, bring your money with you for meters near the Gallery. 

Let's meet on the corner of Queen and Balfour Streets at 8am, we will need to keep an eye out for eggs along the way............although we are assured of a bunny at the end.

BARANGAROO NANGAMAY

It is time to have another look at Barangaroo and this time we have the addition of an interactive artwork .........should be interesting.

Download the free app  Barangaroo Ngangamay on your phone and we can discover engravings, stories and short films honouring Barangaroo and all Aboriginal women. 

The app uses GPS and guides you to the site of carvings and other immersive art works.

We meet outside the Museum of Contemporary Art, Circular Quay side, at 8am.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

WILLOUGHBY LEISURE

SATURATION POINT 

We are staying mostly on road this week as the ground is still saturated after all the rain - thanks Debbie - starting at the Willoughby Leisure Centre car park (free parking) we will make our way towards St Leonards and return to the Incinerator cafe for a coffee. The walk is about 6 kms.

The Incinerator has some interesting history...originally designed by Walter Burley Griffin and used from 1934 to 1967 to process waste, it was damaged by lightening and vandalised before an unsympathetic renovation in the 1980s. Work began on the current renovation in 2006; the architects could find very little original design information so used 3-D modelling from photographs to assist with the design. The building now houses a small art gallery and artist space downstairs and the cafe above. It is wonderful that this unique building has been preserved, who would have thought Burley Griffin designed incinerators?.


Please let me know if you are able to come this Sunday especially if the weather is uncertain.

HARBOUR SCULPTURES

WOOLWICH WALKING

It is Harbour Sculptures time again, it's always interesting to see how the sculptures enhance Clarkes Point and this year there is a pop up cafe at the Hunters Hill Sailing Club which could ease congestion at the other cafes.

The planned walk is nearly 7kms but we frequently get side tracked when the sculptures are exhibited......

We will meet and park in Franki Street, near the Woolwich Pier Hotel at 8am, fingers crossed the rain stays away for the morning. On street parking is free in Franki Street.
