Weekend Walks for Women - Saturday
Join a group of Wise Women Weekend Walking at Para Wirra!
Tickets are $25pp plus booking fee for non-members and half-price for Big Heart Adventures members.
THIS A BEGINNERS WALK
Please arrive at 8:15am for an 8:30am start at the Lake Carpark in Para Wirra.
Dee will be your walk leader and will be there to meet you. Our leaders carry group first-aid kits, emergency communication devices and are experienced bushwalking leaders.
We will walk the Devils Nose Hike and Lake circuit hike, approximately 6km - 90 mins. The terrain here is rocky in places but not too hilly.
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 of 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, walk leaders have the right to ask you not to walk with the group for safety reasons.
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.
If the weather forecast is for extreme weather or a fire ban is issued for the Adelaide Hills, this walk will be cancelled the day before and fully refunded.
If you have any questions, you can call Lisa Murphy on 0418 802 361 (0478 825 144 on the day of the walk only).
Minimum age requirement is 15 years old as long they are accompanied by a supervising adult - please check with Lisa if unsure.
Tickets for Saturday 18 May are $25pp plus booking fee and can be made through Eventbrite.
