About this Walk

National Tree Day is promoted as an opportunity to do something positive for your local environment and community and to reconnect with nature.   This walk will focus on helping you reconnect with nature using all your senses, to help you slow down, relieve stress and reconsider our relationships with ourselves, each other and the environment around us.  Come and celebrate our amazing trees and all they do to keep us healthy!   On this walk, you will bask in the energy of the famous giant flooded gum.  Be sure to read about the other health and wellbeing benefits of Nature Therapy available to you on this walk.

Meeting Spot

We will meet at the Swans Road Crossing Picnic Area, just off Bruxner Park Road.  Download a map here.

Important things to note

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 1pm, therefore it is suggested you arrive at 12:45pm to receive the necessary briefing.  If you are expecting to arrive after 1pm, 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.
