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.

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. 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.

01. Saturday 04 September Sunrise: Apple Tree Flat Lookout
This is the extended version of the Apple Tree Bay Pipeline Circuit. The old pipeline with its reservoir once supplied water to the small boatsheds around Apple Tree Bay. You will definitely find those endorphins on this walk as you tackle the Pipeline track and ascend back out of the valley. The walk also visits three great lookouts that take in Cowan Waters and Apple Tree Flat. The last lookout high up on the ridgetop will give you views from where you just walked. This walk is a real endorphin builder! Some very easy rock scrambling involved. Distance is approximately 6.5km. Expected finish time is 9.40am.
02. Saturday 11 September Sunrise: Beyond Djarra Crossing Members Only
It’s Muogamarra open season once again and we are off to explore some more of this beautiful sanctuary and its wildflowers. This southern section of the reserve was once known as Sir Edward Hallstrom Faunal Reserve and was dedicated in 1961. In March 1969 the two areas (north and south) were amalgamated into what is now known as Muogamarra Nature Reserve covering an area of 5,620 acres (2,274ha). The name ‘Muogamarra’ is believed to be an Aboriginal word meaning "preserve for the future" and ‘Djarra’ also spelt Dajarra is reportedly an Aboriginal word referring to an isolated mountain nearby of which there are two; Mount Dewrang and Mount Neerim. Distance is approximately 9.5km. Expected event finish time is 9.55am.
03. Saturday 18 September ½DayTrek: Blackbutt Creek to Terrys Creek Members Only
The suburbs of the Upper North Shore are encompassed by extensive stands of natural bushland which occupy the valleys of the tributaries of Middle Harbour Creek to the north and the Lane Cove River to the south. Open trails and paths extend deep into these valuable and extensive reserves, allowing access to the area's natural beauty and the3meter high Blackbutt Falls. With a side track thrown in, we can sidle along Falls Creek to see the 5meter high St Johns Falls although each of the falls require rain before they have any significant flow. Blackbutt Creek has some of the tallest Blackbutts, along with attractive Turpentines and Peppermint woodland. The track follows the creek through the reserve which is home to numerous endangered flora and fauna species, including the Powerful Owl. From Blackbutt Creek, we now travel through the Lane Cove Valley via the Great North Walk, and it is along this trail that you will discover a side track leading off to the Historic Steps. The steps were carved into the bedrock many years ago to allow people to picnic and swim in the nearby Lane Cove Creek. After inspection of the areas remnants we take a short journey before entering the bushland corridor of Terrys Creek. This creek was named after Edward Terry (1840 - 1907) who served as the first mayor of Eastwood municipality. The corridor has a very diverse amount of bushland and is home to remnant Blue Gum High Forest, an extremely rare ecological community with less than 5% left in existence. As well as featuring this majestic gum tree it also contains Blackbutt and Turpentine. These trees were harvested by timber-getters shortly after colonisation. While much of the original vegetation has been cleared, Terrys Creek provides a stunning natural landscape for the visitor. The walk is approx. 13 kilometres across slightly undulating terrain with an easy medium through to medium grading. Note: This is a station to station walk finishing at Epping.
04. Saturday 18 September Sunrise: The Gully to Sams Creek
This sunrise takes us from Berowra via Sams Creek on a circuitous style walk. Sams Creek is an area with rich lush vegetation including rainforest and is a great place to take photographs. After a brief stop, we climb out of the valley on a zig zag trail for some heart pounding exercise before settling into some easier grades to the finish. Distance is approximately 6.8km. Expected finish time is 9.30am.
05. Saturday 25 September Sunrise: Wired For Light ☕ MT
Well, this walk will get you abuzz with excitement. This circuitous style Sunrise takes you from the plateau area of Belrose down into the valleys of Bare Creek and the upper reaches of Middle Harbour Creek. The walk travels through the heathlands and tall forests that grow abundant in the wetter areas in the valleys crossing a number of creeks along the way. Distance is approximately 9.5km. Expected finish time is 10.10am.
06.Saturday 02 October Sunrise: The Heights to Berowra Creek
You will get energized on this one. Obviously, it is all the way down, then all the way back up to The Heights again. It is a pleasant walk and one that is suited for keeping your fitness level engaged. This walk has some great scenery along the way. It also sidles a section of Berowra Creek before stopping at the water’s edge for a break at the half way point. Distance approximately 7.5km. Expected event finish time is 9.40am.
