Trial My Sunrise
Join us and help raise much needed funds for cancer research....
We welcome you to trial a Sunrise Bushwalk with us. During November/December 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.
Simply register below, trial the walk, 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, and if not, you may choose to move away.
The choice is entirely yours.... You are under no obligation!
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.
Get Your Heart Health Back On Track Today and Lower Your Risk of Developing Cancer.....

We look forward to having most members along for this festive occasion and to wish everyone a joyful Christmas and Happy New Year. Come along enjoy a peaceful easy short walk plus relax with your fellow walkers for a catered morning tea by the harbour. The walk will take us around Balls Head to the now refurbished lands of Carradah Park where once stood Sydney’s BP storage facility. The BP site, is significant for its historical association with eminent merchants Edward Wollstonecraft and Alexander Berry and retains evidence of its former industrial usage. Another highlight of the walk is a view of the historic coal loader wharf and a walk through the coal loader tunnels. But, you shouldn’t forget about the inspiring views that you have over morning tea and along the trail.
