NOTE: depending in weather conditions, event date might be change. Please check for updates regularly.
It is very likely the event will be changed to Saturday this week instead of Sunday, due to weather conditions this weekend.

Note that I am not taking responsibility for your safety during the walk. As I am not a professional guide, this is just an invitation if you want to join me for a walk.

Dear bushwalkers,

Covering a large section of central Royal National Park, this walk goes through the heath and scrub along a well managed and signposted track. The walk loops from Heathcote Railway Station around to Engadine Station. With public transport at both ends, toilets and water at both Uloola Falls and Reid’s Park, this track has ample infrastructure to keep a walker out for a day, without losing the sense of getting away from it all.

The walk is Protected content long. We will walk from Heathcote Station to Audley, have a lunch break at Audley picnic ground and walk back to Engadine.

This walk is grade 4. Required level of fitness is the average to advanced. There are several quite steep parts.
If we are all fairly fit, it takes approximately 7h, with 45min break for the lunch.

Significant part of the walk is through proper bush. You might end up with scratched legs or see some snakes. I did this walk Protected content before and at least twice it took me some 5min to find my way at 2 or 3 locations.
Protected content
The train back goes every 30 min.

Please wear enclosed walking shoes, bring weather protection according to weather forecast, insect repellent, sun protection, hat and sun screen.
Also bring enough drinking water ( 1.5-2.5 L ) snacks and lunch.
Previous hiking experience is essential. Please do not sign up if you haven’t done 15km walk before.
