Booking is required for all walks.  To book please contact the leader no later than the Wednesday beforehand for walks on a weekend and much earlier than that for extended walks. Express your interest early to allow dates to be changed if necessary. 

Non-members can find out more about an activity by contacting the Secretary. Before going on an activity, you must agree to certain conditions. When carpooling, we usually meet at the Kepler St carpark near KFC.
