Walking for fitness
Please be aware that there is no accident cover for a walker. Your reply and attendance indicates that you understand and accept the risks involved and take responsibility for your own safety. We are mostly on National Park trails and tracks, these can be challenging at times. Please come prepared – this means suitable clothing and shoes, food and water, and a small first-aid kit.
We suggest that you have adequate personal accident cover, including ambulance cover as part of your private health insurance, or ambulance only cover. For trips further afield, you may want to consider an annual domestic travel insurance policy.
Remember to look up where you are going the night before, don’t rely on GPS, don’t be late, we won’t wait! Our organisers are all volunteers and it is important that you are able to safely complete the walk by being prepared. All of our walks are graded 3 and above.
We walk in bush areas of Sydney’s north shore. During the months of summer walks may be shortened to 2 hours depending on the weather forecast. Please check the weekly email for updated details. Bring your morning tea as we will stop for a short break. RSVP to walk organiser by 8pm Sunday night (text is best). Maximum group size is 10.

Events and Adventures
We like to get out of our comfort zone into the magic zone with adventure challenges and events. A mix of weekend and multi-day adventures, trail-running or endurance walking, rogaining and cycling. As the Covid pandemic has changed much of what we do, trips are likely to arise at short notice – please understand that we may not be able to accommodate everyone with short notice programs.
