Greenways Community Walk 2016: Happy Heart Walks
We are in the process of planning our community HAPPY HEART WALKS for 2016, which aims to get people and their dogs & horses out walking, talking, riding, enjoying connecting with others in the community. This year, we will be working closely with the Gearys Gap/ Wamboin Landcare Group to try to share and improve our knowledge of the locality.
Summer Walk : Greenways Australia Day 2016
Tuesday 26th January 2016 at 8am: Starts from the Bywong Hall at the Les Reardon Reserve. Walk is approximately 6 kms & will take about 2 hours; we also have a shorter option that is 3.8km. Dogs on leads are welcome to join the walk with owners. You can find more details of this walk below.
Join us for a community walk from Bywong Hall (Les Reardon Reserve) heading south on the greenways to the community reserve at Birchman’s estate.
WALK: Meet at the Bywong Hall, Les Reardon Reserve for a beautiful walk through the bush (3.8kms-6km) on greenways & crown roads to a community reserve (see photo below) , and return to the Hall for a shared Australia Day late breakfast.
A shorter option is available (3.8kms) and involves a car shuffle to bring walkers back to the Hall.
This is an opportunity to explore a few lovely parts of our locality, and to ask questions about the area, flora, fauna and about the greenways.
Some of this walk is on tracks and some of it is walking through bush without tracks. Walkers need to anticipate some rough walking.
