Event description

Description

Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park in Sydney is one of my favourite places for outdoor adventures. It’s close, but has incredible hikes, beautiful waterways and you feel miles from the hustle and bustle of the city. We pause at some beautiful, tranquil bays which are ideal for a refreshing dip if you’re up for it (I’ll be going in!). There’s also a good climb out of the valley, so you can challenge yourself with the option to walk (or run) ahead – great for those buns of steel! But don’t worry, the group won’t be breaking speed records so the rest of us will take it steady and meet at the top.

It’s a one-way walk with a train station at either end so it’s super convenient by public transport.
Please note the slightly later meeting time to coordinate with the train. We will meet on the 5th carriage (the first after the guard’s compartment) of the train leaving Central at 7:18am which passes Mount Kuring-Gai Station at 8:17am and arrives at Berowra 8:21am. All the details will be in the email you receive the week before the trip.

Level: Intermediate (approx 11kms but with a challenging climb). Exact distance may vary depending on the group and weather conditions.

Live Adventure provides:

  • Snacks
  • Logistics, timing, planning all organised – you just turn up to the meet point
  • Small group for personalised experience
  • Friendly and experienced guide qualified in 1st aid and emergency procedures (with 1st aid kit)
  • Get fit while having a fun adventure in a beautiful, natural location

Just wear comfortable walking clothes and be ready to have fun! I’ll send you all the details including the exact meeting point the week before.

Please book at the latest by 5pm on the Saturday to ensure your spot (and your snacks!).


FAQs

Where do I find out more?

More details including full terms and conditions are at:

Who is this for?

Men and women who want to get outdoors, build fitness, a challenge, or to take time out and escape from devices. All you need is an open mind, an adventurous spirit and moderate fitness. We are inclusive and friendly so there’s no need to come with a friend, you’ll meet people on the trip.

What do I bring?

Comfortable walking clothes including hat and sunnies
Closed shoes for walking (running shoes are fine)
Water bottle
Rain coat
Warm jumper
Personal medication
Sense of adventure :-)

I'll have snacks, suncream, first aid kit (just in case!), so we'll be all set to go.

How fit do I need to be?

For intermediate adventure trips, you don’t need to run but we usually walk 8-12kms, often over rocks and uneven terrain so you need to be comfortable with this distance and sturdy on your feet. If you’re not sure, please call us on 0425209940 to check.

What happens if it’s raining?

It adds to the adventure! If we could choose, we might not pick wet weather but you’d be surprised what rain can add to outdoor adventures. It can make rugged coastlines atmospheric, it can bond the group together, it can make the trip even more memorable. With the right attitude, there’s no reason for rain to dampen the day.

Exceptions are if the weather is so bad it would make the trip dangerous in which case we will either change to a different adventure trip or cancel (hardly ever!). We will let you know ASAP if that happens.


What’s the refund policy?

We hope you don’t have to cancel of course, but sometimes life happens and you don’t have much choice. Please let us know as soon as possible. You will get credit towards a future trip based on the following (we run trips almost every weekend). If you cancel:

  • More than 30 days in advance, you get a full refund.
  • 7-30 days in advance, you get credit towards a future trip but no cash refund.
  • Less than 7 days before the trip, don’t show up for the trip, or are late and miss the trip, no credit or refund will be given.
