Walk with a group in a tropical paradise


3rd Wednesday of each month. 

On 20 November we will start out from RACQ, Earlville, at 7.00 am and head up to Lake Eacham first, for an hour’s walk. After we will stop for a snack; those who want a quick swim, can do so. Next, we will head back to Lake Barrine for a walk around the lake, which takes approximately two hours, with lunch at the Barrine Tearooms after. These are both crater lakes with beautiful surrounding rain forest. Bring sunscreen/repellent, hat, plenty of water, snacks and swimwear if needed.

This is a popular walk for all abilities. It is also our last walk for the year, so looking forward to seeing you all. 

On 18 December we will get together for our Christmas lunch. Please RSVP by 10 December.

Our walks are a great way to enjoy the great outdoors, fresh air and exercise, and the comradery of like-minded people.  We have a varied selection of walks, one each month, which range from easy to moderate to the odd strenuous ones. We have a strong core group who like to meet socially as well. We generally recommend to bring water, hat, strong shoes, sunscreen/repellent and snacks.  

Some of our trips have included:

  • Glacier Rock, both from Speewah and Rainforest Estate
  • Lakes Barrine and Eacham
  • The Bump Track, Port Douglas
  • Mossman Gorge
  • Goldfields Trail, Babinda
  • Behana Gorge
  • Blue, Red and Green Arrow walks
  • White Rock Peak
  • Copperlode
  • Fitzroy Island 
  • and more ….

We always carry drinks and snacks, but if a suitable café is available we will have a light lunch after our walk. 

New members are always welcome.  Stay fit and healthy and enjoy our beautiful bush.  Come and enjoy this beautiful place we live in!
