ROSEVILLE MARINA

ROSEVILLE BECKONS

This will be our last Sunday morning walk until November....meantime email each other if you have a walk to share on Sundays. 

Let's see if Sunday Nov 12th suits most people for an end of year brunch at our place - if we don't see you on the weekend please email to let us know if you can make it. Probably best to get in early rather than wait till closer to Christmas.


This Sunday we are discovering some bush areas beginning in Roseville Chase. 

Meet near 15 Normac Street, Roseville, near the access to Roseville Marina and, Echo on the Marina cafe(echoonthemarina.com.au)The road is quite narrow with twists and turns but there is parking on the side of the road and a small parking area.

From Normac Street we will cross Boundary Road and skirt Roseville Golf Course before some bush walking on Two Creeks Track by the water under the Roseville Bridge. There will be hills and bush tracks as well as some street walking(!) In the sunshine Echo on the Marina is a wonderful venue for coffee.

NORTH HEAD

BEAUTIFUL NORTH HEAD

This Sunday the Sydney Marathon is on and the Bridge is closed so we thought we would head far away from the madding crowds..........fingers crossed.

This North Head loop is approx 6 kms, and, as far as everyone can remember, not very steep or challenging.  I have been wanting to do this walk for ages, looking forward to it.

Meet at the Bella Vista cafe on North Head Scenic Drive, just past the Hole in the Wall track, at the usual time of 8am. Don't know about paying for parking , the North Fort car park is just past the cafe, so bring money in case.

Let's hope for another stunning Sydney Sunday.

BEAUTY SPOT



EVER SEEN A QUAKERS HAT?

This Sunday could be your opportunity................Beauty Point is very aptly named and has a lovely bush track leading to the Quakers Hat. 

Magnificent middle harbour vistas and spectacular views through the Heads keep our minds off a few steps and hills on this walk. It is only a shortie but a goodie. To start the walk we have a narrow bush track, then we need our street cred as we cross Military Road to the Balmoral side and proceed to The Spit for coffee. 

Meet in Pearl Bay Avenue Mosman, near Moss Lane, at 8am.
If coming from the city on Military Road, take the second left turn after Medusa Street, half way down the Spit Bridge hill , parking should be plentiful.






Only 6kms!!

CAMPERDOWN CALLING

POCKET CITY FARM

We are heading to Camperdown to start and finish at the Pocket City Farm in Mallett Street Camperdown. This converted bowling club is a roaring success with a productive farm, cafe and play area. Fingers crossed the weather allows us a few dry hours on Sunday.

 The walk is about 6.5kms. Please let me know if you are coming; especially as the weather forecast is so uncertain. 

Meet outside the Farm in Mallett Street, park on the street, no meters. 

Here's the link:http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/1618431859

The following Sunday, Sept 2nd, is Fathers Day so no walk that day.

HARBOURSIDE

CLIFTON GARDENS TO THE ZOO

We thought a walk around the shores of the Harbour would be good this Sunday, this walk is about 8.5kms and includes the Scottish cairn in Mosman (just to keep Steve and I in holiday mode) as well as some spectacular harbour views.  Coffee at the hole in the wall at Clifton Gardens will revive us before the last uphill leg.

Meet at 8am in the carpark near Gunners Barracks, Suakin Drive, Georges Heights. Follow the signs to Gunners Barracks, the car park is as far as that road takes you. No meter money required this week. 

Looking forward to catching up and hearing about the Drummoyne and Barangaroo walks, which looked amazing from the pics.

CASTLECRAG AND NORTHBRIDGE

BUSH WALKING IN THE CITY

To indulge Steve and I, so we don't miss the bush too much , this week we walk around Northbridge and Castlecrag. The walk is about 5.5kms covering some bush and suburban streets. There are a few hills, some bush and water views.........and we visit 'The Haven' a Burley Griffin outdoor amphitheatre.

Meet  in the car park at the end of The Outpost in Northbridge, turn sharp left on Kameruka Road, just near our place. Plenty of unmetered parking. Sat nav might read Northbridge Bowling Club.








Cheers,
