The first of Council’s guided Seasonal Walks for Seniors is scheduled for Thursday 11 March. Starting at 11am, walkers will be guided along the popular and beautiful Boronia Beach track in Kingston. Walkers can expect a delightful, relaxed ramble with good company and a light lunch provided.
Dates have also been set for the winter, spring and summer walks, with destinations to be confirmed. The three dates are Thursday 10 June, Thursday 14 October and Thursday 9 December.
Last year, as part of Seniors Week, Council hosted a group bushwalk along the coastline from Trial Bay to Kettering. Participants learned about local flora and fauna and the history of the area from information provided by the storehouse of Kingborough’s heritage, the Channel Museum.
The event was so well received, that Council has scheduled this series of gentle local walks where the focus is on learning about places, as well as enjoying the beautiful surroundings on offer in our own backyard. The walks are part of Council’s Positive Ageing program and are run in conjunction with the Natural Areas Network team. Walks are free and bookings are essential. For details and bookings please phone Council’s Community Development Officer on 6211 8170 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
