The meeting place for all activities will be the car-park at the end of Sandy Bay Road, corner of Fairbairn Avenue, Fisher Bay, Clontarf.
While the Fisher Bay walks are rated ‘easy’, they require ascending and descending staircases and moderate hills.
Precautions should be taken against the risk of ticks, mosquitos, spiders, snakes, sun exposure, dehydration and slips or falls.
Participants are advised to wear light, protective clothing – long sleeves and pants, comfortable walking shoes (no thongs or ‘flip-flops’!) and a hat. Please bring sunscreen and a water bottle.
Warning: We have been experiencing a high prevalence of ticks in the Northern Beaches area which are associated with a range of diseases and potentially life-threatening allergic reactions.
Please note that by registering for these activities you are aware of the risks and have taken appropriate precautions.
