Park Walks are free walks, guided by our trained volunteers. Park Walks allow you to enjoy walking in urban parks or bushland without having to worry about where the trail is or how long it might take. You will be free to enjoy the beautiful trees and wildlife or even just to relax and catch up with friends or family.
Go on a walk as a once-off to explore somewhere new or become a regular and add it to your wellbeing or fitness routine. The walks can be easy for those who are new to walking or can be a little more challenging for people who have some previous walking experience. Some walks include a catch up for a cuppa at the beginning or end if there is a café nearby.
Bookings are required (for most walks).
And did you also know that walking in nature is also good for you – mentally and physically? It can boost creative thinking, decrease stress levels and blood pressure and helps the whole family lead a happier more active life. Discover why walking in a park should be on your ‘to do’ list!
