PICKING UP WHERE WE LEFT OFF

HUNTERS HILL IN A NEW LIGHT.

We're baaaack! Ready and raring to go on Sunday morning walks again and catch up with our friends.

Val is going to take us around parts of Hunters Hill which we are not familiar with......not our usual routes. This walk takes in some local history, and beautiful old houses, hoping for a fine morning.

Meet outside the IGA at Hunters Hill near the corner of Gladesville and Ryde Roads at 8am.

LA PEROUSE - NEXT INSTALLMENT

CONGWONG AND LITTLE CONGWONG BEACHES

This week we continue the exploration of the Eastern foreshores.....

Begin again at the corner of Endeavour Ave and Anzac Parade,,,,,,,,,near the shops. Plenty of free parking here.

We will explore the coast rather than the bay and enter the Botany Bay National Park leading to Congwong and Little Congwong Beaches. Henry Head is next on the itinerary with some defences to be explored. You will be surprised at the tee on the golf course before looping back to La Perouse for a delicious morning tea. This unassuming cafe has the best strudel and a good view too. 

There will be sand, there will be coastal bush, but there will not be (many) stairs.

No link today - you will just have to trust us on this one!

See you 8am Sunday.

ROSEVILLE PARK

SOUS LE SOLEIL

We start and finish at Roseville Park this week, avoiding the CBD post Mardi Gras revellers.

Meet in Roseville Park on the corner of Cranbrook Ave and Clanville Road Roseville. Plenty of street parking, no meters.

This walk takes us down by Roseville Chase through some bush, then some suburban streets before finishing for coffee in the shady Roseville Park.

Thanks to those who have offered to lead walks while we are away, will finalise details on Sunday,

LA PEROUSE

LA PEROUSE....NEW TERRITORY

Now for something completely different.......this Sunday we discover La Perouse, and there is plenty to discover! It will take several visits to this area for it to reveal all it's glory.......quaint beaches, rugged coastline and coastal bush tracks. Unfortunately one cannot visit the museum at Bare Island unless on a tour (weekend afternoons), so you have to organise that another time.

Park your car and meet at 8am, near the Anzac Parade and Endeavour Ave intersection, no parking meters here. We will walk around Bare Island then on to Frenchmans Bay and Yarra Bay. The beach sand here is very white and fine, so let's hope for good weather.

When there is no traffic it doesn't take too long to get to La Pa (local parlance) especially if you take Southern Cross Drive and exit left at Wentworth Avenue, then follow Bunnerong Road to La Pa.....easy.

And some pics, especially for you Robyn ;-)

2016

MIDDLE HARBOUR TO BEGIN THE YEAR

The first walk of 2016 starts at the little bay where the houseboats are 'parked' and goes through some bush past Quakers Hat before crossing Military Road and then on to The Spit. 

The walk is about 6kms with some very picturesque views. Parking is free and easy on Pearl Bay Avenue, meet at the bottom of the hill near Fig Tree Walk at 8am.

It has been quite a while, so there will be lots of  catching up to do. See you there.
