These 'Short n Easy' walks are designed for people who love the bush and the great outdoors but for whatever reason, find standard NRBC walks just a bit too long or arduous. There certainly will be time to stop and smell the Banksias, however reasonable fitness and walking pace are still required.
As the name suggests, these ‘Short n Easy' Walks are:
Short - They will range from 3km to 5km.
Easy - There will only be slight gradients (i.e. seriously approaching flat or down hill) and while there might be roots, stairs and uneven surfaces, they won’t involve rock scrambling.
As the social component of these walks is important, a coffee stop at a designated venue will always occur after the walk. Participants will be advised if that format will be at a nearby coffee shop or byo thermos and cake at the picnic table.
The start time for each walk has deliberately been omitted from the walk descriptions, to ensure that people follow the standard NRBC procedure i.e. register for the walk with the walk leader, prior to receiving details of start time and start location.
Club members are warmly encouraged to suggest and lead other ‘Short n Easy’ category walks (varying days of the week etc). An email distribution list also helps facilitate ideas and carpooling, which is encouraged.
If any member wishes to be placed on the email distribution list for these ‘Short n Easy' Walks, please contact Maggie. If you are not a member and wish to participate in a club activity, contact the Leader to register.
