End-to-End 4 – first day Sunday 26th April
A successful start to the End to End Four walks. 145 walkers safely hiked the 15km wet and slippery trail, and finished to a Haighâs chocolate frog treat – from our lovely lady assistants. The day was blowy, sunny with just a few isolated rain squalls to keep us cool. With dolphins, rainbows, a spaceship, wonderful cloud formations, plus a rugged coast, rolling hills, kangaroos aplenty and coastal scrub â such a variety of experiences we were treated to. Many thanks to all the volunteers for all the organising, and to the walkers who came to enjoy.

Opening of Walking Season
Opening of Walking Season was on Sunday 5th April 2009
Murray Recreation Parkâ Eden Valley 11:00am to 3:00pm
The FoHT walk – ably lead by Julian, was a little longer than expected (but not by much), yet enjoyed those who completed the whole walk.
A drizzly morning evolved into a lovely sunny day. Our display was popular for new enquiries and a stopping spot for our members to have a chat.
We can now get on with a new season of walking. Happy Walking!!
