This group is for people who want to go for a sociable walk (generally afternoon, evening or late morning) in a group of around 20-25 people. Walks will normally be between 8-12 km and last between 2 to 4 hours (including stops). Frequently we'll start from somewhere that's easy to get to by car or public transport eg Tamaki drive waterfront, Devonport and surrounds, Takapuna to Milford and back. We walk at a medium to fast pace so a good level of fitness and agility is required for most walks. We do stop to enjoy some interesting sights on the way and take photos and normally stop for a BYO picnic snack,lunch or dinner. The walk or activity will normally be posted a week to three days before the event.
Meetup groups like this one are run by volunteers who would like to relax and enjoy the event as much as other participants. As such we expect everyone to take responsibility for themselves as we are not liable for any personal loss or injury at any event. By RSVP ing "Yes" you accept that you have read all the details of the trip and that you participate at your own risk. Therefore for your own safety and enjoyment and that of others please do not sign up for an event unless you know that your abilities are well within the level of fitness and agility required for it. If you want to bring a friend to an event they need to sign up to this group so that they have the same understanding as above. Also there are limited spaces for our trips and so many members, so we have a policy that only members can come.
Also we support the work of the Pourewa restoration group that has over many years been restoring the bush that we sometimes walk in in Kohimarama. It has a meetup group called "Pourewa Restoration group" which plans to meet up monthly for 90 mins to help with the restoration followed by a short tour of the bush.
