Activities program

To book for any activity please contact the leader by no later than Wednesday for walks on a weekend and much earlier than that for extended walks. Express your interest early to allow dates to be changed if necessary. 

Non-members can find out more about an activity by contacting the Secretary. Before going on an activity, you must agree to certain conditions.When carpooling, we usually meet at the Kepler St carpark near KFC.

Monthly Meetings are usually at 7:30 pm on the second Tuesday of the month in the Archie Graham Centre. On Tuesday 10 August there will be a talk at 7:30 on the history of the Breakwater and surroundings.
