From March to October we walk every second Sunday somewhere in the Darling Ranges within a reasonable travelling distance from Perth, or in a park area in the plain. We normally meet at the nominated meeting place at 9:30 am and start walking at 10 am. The walks are usually 8 – 12 km long and we stop for morning tea and lunch. Walkers usually bring a small backpack. We have afternoon tea when we return to the cars, usually around 2 – 3 pm, and share cakes and biscuits that walkers bring.
Walkers should be reasonably fit, wear suitable foot wear, clothing and hat and bring sufficient water. It is advisable to apply sun-screen cream and possibly also insect repellant.
From November to March we have ‘Summer Walks’ on the second or third Sunday of the month. These walks are along the coast, on the beach or the coastal path or some of each. To avoid the midday heat we meet at the nominated meeting place at 7:15 am, leave at 7:30 am and finish the walk around 11 am.
The walk area and meeting place are published in the Coming Events page of the monthly Naturalist News and also on the events calendar of this website. You can also see the yearly planned events with this whole year view of the calendar.
New walkers are always welcome.
