About this Walk

Forest Bathing Day is an initiative of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy.  We invite you to join us for this global event, when Forest Therapy Guides worldwide lead a connected walk experience for all people.  This day emphasizes connection with the Earth and other nature enthusiasts, no matter the distance between us.  Check out our Nature Therapy page to read about the health and wellbeing benefits of forest bathing available to you on this walk.

Important things to note

There are no toilets available on this walk.  Please tend to your bathroom needs before you arrive.  The nearest public toilets are at Sealy Lookout.

Suitable for ages 14+ and people of all fitness levels.  Distance covered is less than 800m.  Some uneven ground and slopes will be experienced on this trail.

This walk will start promptly at 2pm, therefore it is suggested you arrive at 1:45pm to receive the necessary briefing.  If you are expecting to arrive after 2pm, it is our preference that you reschedule your walk for another time.  In the interests of other walkers who arrive on time, we appreciate your co-operation.

In the case of rain, a note will be put on the Facebook page event if cancelled.   Generally if it is just a shower or sprinkle the walk will continue as this is a beautiful opportunity to explore our relationship with water.   If it is a  storm which threatens our safety, it is likely to be cancelled.  If in any doubt don’t hesitate to call Lucy on the day on 0417 927 657.
