WALK & A WINE: OCEANWAY Part 6
BOOKINGS FOR THIS WALK WILL OPEN ON FEBRUARY 11 Please note that there will be no W&W event in February due to Barry's availability. Continuing our series of Sunday afternoon 'Walk & Wine', we'll meet at the Currumbin Surf Club for our next sojourn. This one is a slight departure from our usual beachwalks, heading up along the river and through the wetlands. We won't get very far in terms of our trek to The Spit but this one is a particularly nice walk ... and we'll finish up at the beautiful Currumbin SLSC which is always a winner! THE WALK - approx 5kms Following the river and parklands along to the old Currumbin bridge, then across to the other side for a very pleasant trail along the timbered boardwalk through Mangrove wetlands. Before you return to the surf club via the new bridge, extend the walk by exploring the trails through the beachfront parkland along the northern mouth of the creek. Not sure how long this one is - only a few kilometres. ORGANISER Barry Baker - 0407 636 280. Please make sure your RSVP is up to date the night before and text Barry on the day if you find you can't make it at the last minute so the group does not have to wait around unnecessarily. WHAT TO BRING Water, hat, sunscreen, comfortable shoes. Photo ID is required for entry to our surf lifesaving clubs so please make sure you bring your driver's licence or similar. NEW MEMBERS WELCOME! If you haven't been to one of our events before, our monthly Walk & Wine is a great way to get a feel for what we're all about and to meet some new people. We've set ourselves the goal of walking the Gold Coast Oceanway this year - a 36-km track that extends from Pt Danger on the NSW/Qld border up to the Southport Spit. Each month, we'll do a short section on a Sunday afternoon, followed by coffee or drinks at the nearest watering hole. This is purely a social event and we take it at a very leisurely pace so fitness is not an issue. COST We'll pass around the hat again for a $1 contribution to cover our registration on the Meetup website which is around $190 per year. We are a strictly non-profit organisation and any additional funds in the kitty are donated to the Springbrook SES each year. OUR PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PHILOSOPHY We are not a formal organisation or association and take no responsibility for any mishaps that may occur as a result of our activities. As such, it is up to each individual to make sure they are capable of attempting this track.

What we're about

Public Group

Welcome to the Gold Coast Hiking Meetup Group. If you're looking for a way to meet new people and you enjoy getting out and about in the great outdoors, you've come to the right place!
We offer everything from serious hiking adventures and extended bushwalks through to short coastal walks and social get-togethers so you're sure to find something that appeals.
Our members are a friendly bunch, with all age groups represented. Many are still new to the Coast; others have lived here for years. Most come on their own and you'll find that everyone makes an effort to chat.
I know it can be a bit daunting to sign up for an 'internet' group like this so you might like to start with our monthly 'Walk & Wine' which is basically a short stroll somewhere along the beachfront, followed by drinks or coffee at a nearby watering hole.
It's free to join - most of our events cost nothing more than a $1 donation - we have a heap of fun - so what are you waiting for? Joining the Gold Coast Hiking Meetup Group might just be the best thing you do this year!
