The route map.
Join us as we walk the iconic 250 km trail from Sydney to Newcastle.
The Great North Walk is a wonderful trail following many tracks through a magnificent array of natural and urban environments.
Created in 1988, as an Australian Bicentennial project, the Great North Walk is rich in the history of New South Wales. Follow the links for more information about the walk.
The Friends will be exploring this long-distance Trail over 17 days in May 2018.
You can find out more about this walk from Peter Solomon using the email link given in the walk description on the Friends walk calendar.
To secure accommodation, bookings need to be made early. Make sure you don’t miss out on this great walk.
The Friends will close our Office for the Christmas period at 2.30 pm this Friday, December 15th 2017. Our volunteers have earned a good break, so we will reopen at 10.30 am on Monday 5th February 2018.
If you need to contact the Office (by email or telephone) over that period, it is unlikely that we will respond to your enquiry until we reopen. So we recommended that you refer to our website for any information you may need over the office closure.
Online Shop Sales over Christmas
While the office is closed, our online shop will remain open for business.
However, as many of our volunteers will be on holidays, it may take longer than normal to service orders. We will endeavour to despatch shop orders within 5 business days.
If you want to shop for last minute Christmas purchases we undertake to despatch any orders received by midday on Tuesday December 19th, on that day.
The Heysen Trail is closed over the Fire Danger Season
Remember that the Heysen Trail is now closed for the Fire Danger Season. You can get more information about the trail closure here.
Register for Twilight walks
Although the office and the Heysen Trail are closed, don’t forget our Wednesday evening Twilight Walks. You can register for walks using our online Walks Calendar.
The Office Volunteers wish all Friend’s members and supporters a Merry Christmas and a great New Year.
