Description

A beach walk from Christies Beach to O’Sullivan Beach Boat ramp and back. The walk from Christies Creek outlet (UBD Map 185, F6) is a leash free area for dogs, and don’t our 4 legged friends love it! So bring along your dogs if they are capable of walking 5 km with you.

Shoes/sandals/thongs are not essential. We will be walking along the beach for 2.5 km each way, 5 km in total.  Bring your cossies/bathers if you would like to go for a swim after the walk.  High tide is at 7.33 pm on this day. We may have to take a short detour to the path on the Esplanade to get around some rocks at the Christies Beach Sailing Club/Surf Lifesaving Club boat ramp if the tide is in too far.

BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.
