BLUE GUM BUSH TRACK

CHATSWOOD REVEALS A TREASURE

This 5km walk is a hidden gem, we start at Lowanna Park in Greville Street Chatswood, where there is free on street parking.

The track is very interesting, taking us into what was once Chatswood Rifle Range, who'd have thought we had a rifle range so close by? There are some hills and some bush track as well as some suburban street walking, quite a mixed bag.

Hope to see you there.
 




 

 









As you can see the options for coffee are limited to 'Quintessential' for a take away in Lowanna Park or drive to a local cafe, we'll decide on the day.

HUNTING AROUND

HUNTLEY'S COVE LOOP

This Sunday we explore Huntley's Cove - a 5km walk taking us past 2 schools, Riverside Girls and Joeys. There will be lots to see, some bush and water views as well.  All good track this week, especially after a few rainy days.

Park in Gladesville Road, between Ryde Road and Matthew Street, we will meet on the corner of Matthew St and Gladesville Rd at 8am. Val reports there is good coffee nearby so we don't have to scout around.

See you then.

SCULPTURE AT SAWMILLERS

CULTURE VULTURES

The sculpture exhibition at Sawmillers Reserve, McMahons Point, ends on Sunday; there are about 70 sculptures which we will pass when we start our walk, and after we conclude you can take another walk through at your leisure - it is an excellent exhibition, lots of variety and some very interesting works. Have a look here: www.sculptureatsawmillers.com


Meet at 8am on the corner of West Crescent and Blues Point Road, there is 2 hour street parking, with some unlimited parking at the end of West Crescent. 

We will walk about 7kms because we won't do the Kirribilli loop shown on this link. We propose coming down past Luna Park and returning to Blues Point Road, there are lots of coffee shops around and about so we can decide on the day.

CAPTAIN'S CHOICE

NORTHBRIDGE 

This Sunday we are indulging ourselves with a local walk for very good reason........which you will discover on Sunday.

Start at 8am at our place, park the car in Tenilba Road and we will take a 7km loop around Naremburn, Artarmon and Cammeray before returning.

There are no bush tracks this week, a few hills to get the heart rate up, but very few stairs.
