WHO KNOWS?

LINDFIELD PRECINCT................expect the unexpected.

This Sunday we will walk the great unknown, no idea if there are steps, it appears there will be bush tracks, maybe hills.....................there has been no reconnaissance, so there may be surprises.

It certainly sounds interesting walking through Seven Little Australians Park and then along Two Creeks Track, and we meet at Mack's Place.

8am at Mack's Place on the corner of Slade Ave and Tryon Road Lindfield. If no source of caffeine is found along the route we can drive to Lindfield Station afterwards.

BANTRY BAY & EXPLOSIVES RESERVE

THIS COULD BE EXPLOSIVE........in Castle Cove

Sorry for the late post, but we are most definitely walking on Sunday 27th July.

This walk (approx. 5.5kms) takes us round Castle Cove, into Explosives Reserve and along some foreshore track, and is abundant with wildflowers at present I am told.

Meet on the corner of Cammaray and Willis Roads in Castle Cove at 8am (note to all sat nav users - spelling of Cammaray differs from the suburb)

Steve will be on his Pat Malone as I am not yet fit to walk, I will come for coffee afterwards and hope that the weather is fine.

NOT THIS WEEK

Apologies for the late post but there have been several impediments, internet has been only available in Reception, which is in another building,  and then it is unreliable. The other impediment is my knee which I injured on our first day on the slopes ��.

Upshot is that it here is no walk organised for Sunday.  Kathy suggested a walk in Clarke Park at Woolwich where there is a sculpture exhibition but I haven't researched it, maybe the bush telegraph can work, or maybe we have a sleep in this week.

Look forward to seeing you soon and will try harder next week .

BERRY ISLAND BECKONS

The weather on Sunday promises to be good so we are going on an island walk.....Berry Island.

We will start in Shirley Road, near Wollstonecraft Station, where we very happily found a cafe which opens on Sunday :-) The walk is about 8kms with some steps for our heart health.

Highly recommend this walk, it was very picturesque, see you Sunday.





 A wattle baby.........



 Keep a lookout for this one...........
This last picture is where a tree has blocked the track - turn RIGHT to follow the easier path and LEFT (further left bro) to go via Machu Picchu.......

GO EAST!

BY POPULAR DEMAND......

Julie and Robert have consented to take us on the Eastern Suburbs walk, which takes us through Centennial and Trumper Parks and finishes near the reservoir in Paddington............very interesting and back by popular demand.

Meet in Centennial Park on the corner of Grand Drive and Parkes Drive (near the cafe/kiosk) at 8am .

Be there or be square!

NO WINTER BLUES

ARTARMON AND NAREMBURN.....

Start this week at Naremburn shops; plenty of parking either on the street or in the small shopping centre on Willoughby Road. 

We wander all around Artarmon and Naremburn on a mostly street and park walk of about 7.5 kms. There are several good coffee shops to choose from and a new organic grocer to explore in this interesting little shopping hub.

See you at 8 on Sunday.

LONGER DAYS......

BALMORAL AND CHOWDER BAY

Saturday being the winter solstice will mean that we now can look forward to longer days.........though winter still seems like a memory - from last year!

On Sunday we meet at the carpark near Gunners Barracks in Georges Heights, take the Suakin Drive turnoff from Middle Head Road.

This is a familiar walk with a slight variation, we walk below Burnt Orange cafe and have coffee at the 'Hole in the Wall' at Chowder Bay, one of our favourites.

This walk is about 5kms, with plenty of steps on the metal pathway down to Balmoral Oval, the weather forecast is good. :-)
