From March to October we walk every second Sunday somewhere in the Perth Hills or Darling Ranges within a reasonable travelling distance from Perth. We normally meet at the nominated meeting place at 9:30 and start walking at 10 am. The walks are usually 10-12 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 3 pm, and share cakes and biscuits that walkers bring. The walk area and meeting place are published in the Coming Events page of the monthly Naturalist News.
Walkers should be reasonably fit, wear suitable foot wear, clothing and hat and bring sufficient water. Some also apply sun-screen cream and insect repellant as appropriate.
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, leave at 7:30 and finish the walk around 11 am. The walk area, meeting place and available public transport are published in the Coming Events page of the monthly Naturalist News.
Visitors are always welcome but please phone the walk leader beforehand. The phone number is given in the ‘Coming Events’ notice in the Naturalist News or you can contact our office by phone 9228 2495 for the walk leader's number.
