Hi Explorers,

I'm hoping to connect with others who would like to do some Melbourne based bushwalking/hiking. I'm up for anything - day trips, weekend trips and longer trips. 

I'd especially like to walk the southern circuit at Wilson's Promontory National Park taking perhaps 2-4 days with lots of beach swimming if it's hot enough, within the next month to catch the spring flowers, and/or later as well as it'll only get warmer for more swimming, and the Prom is always stunning.

Interested?  Great!  Adventures await.

Hi there,

I've been thinking of getting back into bushwalking for a while now & was considering doing a couple of hikes with Melbourne Bushwalkers, as they have day hikes most Sundays... you just pay a fee for the bus they arrange.

Right now, I'm incredibly unfit & imagine the first few hikes I do I will be fairly slow. But as I've just signed up with a friend (who lives in another state) to hike Hinchinbrook Island next June, I do have to get my act together & start bushwalking again.

The Prom is an awesome place for hiking. I've done several overnight trips & a couple of 3-day loops (a long time ago). Anyhow, I would be interested in doing some hikes with you and any other Explorer Girl that might be interested, but perhaps day hikes to begin with.

Cheers,

Karen

Hi Karen,

Sorry for the delay in responding.    It would be great to do some day walks. I may be able to recruit a couple of friends as well. I work part-time so am available on some weekdays and weekends and I could possibly borrow a car too. 

If you're still keen on a day walk I could do any day from the 23rd to 29 November except Tuesday the 25th. I guess we could go anywhere; of course it also depends on how far you have to travel. How about somewhere near Eltham?

Ciao, Cat

Hi Cat & other Melbourne-based Explorer Girls,

I'm still very interested in going bushwalking if there are other interested EG's out there?

In the meantime I'm signing up to do a couple of day walks with Melbourne Bushwalkers (on Sunday 18th & Sunday 25th January).

Hope to catch up with some of you soon out on the trails.

Karen

Hey Ladies

Just reading through your posts and already have so much more info on wlaking and bulshwalking in Melbourne as I have been struggling to find some good spots to train.

I'm climbing Kilimanjaro in 2 weeks, so probably a bit short notice to arrange practice before- though I am doing 1000 steps this weekend.

But I'm really enjoying all the walking and would love to keep it up once I'm back in October. Let me know if you are keen!

Hi Emma,

I only just saw your note now... it's been ages since I've looked on EG (which is very slack of me). 

Anyhow, I'm still keen to get back into bush walking. I'm going to start climbing the 1000 steps on a regular basis (maybe once a month) to start with - and then also maybe look into some clubs that go bushwalking. I really need to get some exercise!

I'm a pretty slow hiker, but if you're keen to go one day let me know. 

Cheers,

Karen

thanks Karen

That sounds great. Maybe I can meet you in Camberwell and we can head out together (I'm carless.)

 

I'm working up til 26th December and then have 4 days off and a gal pal coming so let me know where you're at.  Jan is a bit up in the air at the moment too with work but I'm sure we'll sort something out.

 

An Explorer Girls bushwalking club? I think this could be a great thing!

Hi Emma,

I forgot to check back on this post... when you get back from India we can start the 'explorer girls bushwalking club' :)

Enjoy your adventure. 

Cheers,

Karen

 Great Idea Karen.

 

Let's start a bushwalking group. As I'm climbing Machu Pichu this year. I want to get back into the bushwalking and hiking.

 

It would be great to start actvity and action groups on here.
