We are a small group who walk every Thursday morning from 9.30 to approx. 10.30am. The walks are at different places each week, all within around a 30min drive of Upper Beaconsfield and are generally 3-4km long.

Our goal is to get out and about each week, to walk, chat, and see some beautiful local spots, all while reaping the many benefits that walking has to offer.

We welcome new members of all ages and fitness levels. Our pace, however, is more on the gentle side, with stops to look at the views, nature's wonders, and to take photos, so if you are looking for a hardcore workout, we might not be the group for you :)


I do sneak in a few hilly bits on some walks though, so be sure to read the walk details carefully each week and let me know if you are having any medical issues that might make some walks unsuitable and I'll do my best to work around them.


If you'd like to find out more, please check out our Facebook page and you can message me from there, or contact the Office and they'll pass your number onto me so I can give you a call.

Emerald Lake Park - Emerald

It's going to be a couple of degrees cooler up here than down the hill and, hopefully, a good amount of shade for most of the walk, which is going to be a little different from the last time we were here.


Date: Thurs 30th Jan 2020

Time: 9.30am to 10.45am

Meeting Place: In the car park just past the Emerald Museum

For your GPS: 3 Crichton Rd, Emerald

Toilets: There are 2 near the lake area (about 15mins walk from the meeting spot).


Once you turn off Emerald-Beaconsfield Rd next to the Puffing Billy track, keep going straight ahead on Chrichton Rd, then turn left just after you pass through the old gates. The car park is at the bottom, past the Emerald Museum on the right.


The tracks are mostly gently sloping, nice and wide, gravel or paved. This week we are walking to the newly renovated wishing well then back via the Fern Gully trail which is a narrow and rougher dirt track with one short, steep section at the end closest to the cars, so wear decent shoes rather than thongs.

Dogs Allowed (On Leash only)
