THIS IS A MODERATE-HARD WALK
Please arrive at 8:15am for 8:30am start at the end of Addison Road, Athelstone.
Lisa M and Lisa B are walk leaders and will be here to meet you.
Our leaders carry group first aid kits, emergency communication devices and are qualified bushwalking leaders.
We will be walking the Waterfall Hike through Belair plus some additional easy-moderate trails for approximately 3-3.5 hours, and 9-12km. There are some steep up and down sections and we’ll pass through the 40m long Echo Tunnel. There are toilets just near the start of our walk.
Due to the variability of the weather, the following items will be needed:
- a daypack (25-35 litre) backpack
- 1-2 litres of water
- sun protection (hat, sunnies, suncream) or wet weather gear (we will check the forecast and remind you all what to expect!)
- blister kit/personal medication
- high energy snacks/fruit
- boots/comfortable walking shoes
- warm clothing for after the walk (jumper/jacket)
- walking poles (optional)
Please ensure you have the minimum gear required as no refunds are possible after booking. If you arrive underprepared without wet weather clothing or the gear listed above, our Leaders have the right to ask you not to walk with us for safety reasons if you do not have the weather appropriate gear with you.
Please ensure you have the minimum gear required as no refunds are possible after booking.
Our walks are all about fun, fitness and friendship – not a personal training session. If we can’t walk and talk at the same time we are walking too fast! And we never leave anyone behind.
