We welcome you to trial a Sunrise Bushwalk with us. During November / December/ January our group is running a fundraiser for cancer research. For every new participant, our club will double the $10.00 participation subscription in aid of cancer research.

Our early morning bushwalks which start at 7.30am are sure to get your endorphins excited and get you kinetically energised for the rest of the day. It's nature's drug that helps with health and well-being. It can also decrease the risk of heart disease and some cancers among other things.

There too, is new research that shows our style of Sunrise events can keep you younger by lengthening the longevity of life cycle. One day you may still be around and have the stamina to play with your Great Grandkids.

If you would like to feel yourger, get healthier and have fun, then simply register below, trial a Sunrise, meet and greet our members then if you choose, join our members for morning tea afterwards.

If you enjoy the event you may choose to continue on, join up as a full member and if not, you may choose to move away.

The choice is entirely yours.... You are under no obligation! The bottom line though, is that your participation has given cancer research a $20.00 boost towards finding a cure, In advance, thank you for your participation and the help towards our fundraing campaign.

Why It’s Never Too Late to Get Moving.... And, It Is Fun Too!

Research has found that walking speed is linked with heart health and life's longevity. In particular, middle-aged adults who walk at a slow pace were twice as likely to die from heart disease compared with their fast-walking peers. The research is clear, exercise can improve your heart health, even if you haven’t laced up your sneakers in years. If you have been thinking about starting a walk exercise program, there is no better time to begin than today.

Get Your Heart Health Back On Track Today and Lower Your Risk of Developing Cancer.....

02.  Saturday 28 October   SunrisePlus: Morning Tea at The Fretar Palace 

We’ve made arrangements to have the Fretus Hotel open its doors for one day only. So, come along and discover the wonders of this hidden gem that lies near to the heart of our very own backyard. The Fretus Hotel perched high above Calabash Point has views through the tree lined ridge down into Berowra Waters. The Fretus Hotel was originally built in the 1890s by Hotelier, John Fretus, a visionary who was a man before his time. He built this lodging from stone taken from his demolished Sans Souci Hotel which was shipped by coastal steamer and then hauled up the steep ridgeline of Calabash Point. Once a popular Honeymoon destination for adventurous couples in the early part of the last century, it is said to have been luxuriously appointed with impressive Cedar furniture and a grand piano. This was a very affluent appointment for the area and those times. Unfortunately for Fretus, a series of events beyond his control, including some misinformation from a Surveyor, resulted in a change of location of the main road to be built between Berowra Waters and Berrilee. This meant that the Hotel was now off the beaten track and its popularity waned. It gradually fell into disrepair and now sits idle. Join us this season for a Sunrise to the little gem of a place where we will be treated to morning tea as we sit around and reminisce over the historic importance of this scenic landmark. Meet at Berrilee for a 7.30am departure. Distance is approximately 7.6km. Expected event finish time is 10.55am.

03.  Saturday 04 November   Sunrise: Bellbird Circuit

This Saturday we visit sections of Darling Mills Forest. Primarily a circuit walk with tall forest and birdlife which is plentiful, lovely rock architecture along with an Aboriginal shelter. It’s worth having a camera along for this walk. Meet at Carlingford for a 7.30am departure. Distance is approximately 7.5km. Expected event finish time is 9.40am.

04.  Saturday 11 November   Sunrise: Joe Crafts Creek & The Rock

Don’t be put off with the short distance as it is a 100% heart pumper in both directions. At the midway point we will reach ‘The Rock’ where someone has ideally placed a seat for tired bushwalkers to rest their weary feet. Ladies first of course! This Sunrise takes you across Joe Crafts Creek valley while travelling along one of the many beautiful sections of the Great North Walk. Meet at Berowra Heights for a 7.30am departure. Distance is approximately 5.3km. Expected finish time is 9.30am.
