This is an introductory walk for new club members and a lovely local walk for existing club members. Non members will need to pay $5 on the day (bring the correct change) and sign the insurance waiver.
The walk is mostly along fire trails with some steep sections, covering 10.6 km with 320 m of vertical ascent.
We start following the Venman Circuit which winds along the scenic banks of Tingalpa Creek, through melaleuca swamp and into open eucalypt forests. When we reach the NP boundary we leave the Venman circuit and cross into the adjoining Neville Lawrie Reserve, via a very picturesque billabong which involves a short 300 m section of off track walking before re-joining a fire trail and heading to the old quarry for morning tea.
Bring 2L of drinking water, a sun hat, sunscreen and insect repellent.
The Walk Starts from the car park at the end of Venman Road. Just click attend in Meetup if you are a member of the group and meet me there on the day.
