Fridays Foot Flex at FELIXSTOW

Drage Reserve Felixstow

We will walk another pretty loop of Linear park, a sealed shared pathway winding through lovely greenery and creeks, stopping halfway for a coffee at the Lochiel Park Geoff Heath Par 3 Golf Club, we will walk at an average pace of approx 5km per hour so basic fitness will be required. We will meet at the playground and will finish up around 11am approx.

As this walk has been active for many years there is usually a number of people on the walk that know the way, so at times this walk will be self guided and or unhosted.

Please ensure you have downloaded the mySA gov covid app on your phone as this will be needed to check in before you commence any walks. checking inVoluntary Meetup Contribution - $1.00 By recording a YES RSVP and/or attending this Event you are agreeing to our Policies & Guidelines and our Disclaimer & Release.

Brownhill Sunset Walk

McElligott's Quarry Reserve

Join us on a Friday evening for a sunset walk followed by drinks in the garden at Carrick Hill. Meet at McElligott's Quarry Reserve at the end of Carrick Hill Drive (not at Carrick Hill). If using GPS - 45 Carrick Hill Drive, Mitcham will get you there. You can park along the road or you may wish to park your car at Carrick Hill and then walk to the starting point.
We will walk along the Yurrebilla trail through the grounds of Carrick Hill then through the University of Adelaide's Waite Reserve and around to the top of Brownhill back down to where we started. The walk usually takes less than two hours. After the walk we will convene at Carrick Hill for an optional post-walk nibble and drink at "Ursula's Gin Bar."
Wear sturdy footwear and bring water to drink. This is a moderate hike with some steep bits, but mostly undulating. It is not recommended for those with bad knees. There are a couple of stiles to cross over or through. Also, there may also be cattle along a portion of the walk. Total length is around 6 k. The duration of two hours does not include time spent at Carrick Hill. Double vaccination and SA COVID-safe check in required to participate.

Kayaking West Lakes. Bring your own

Aquatic Reserve, West Lakes

Kayak West Lakes. Mathew is co-hosting. Bring your own kayak & lift jacket and meet at the pin shown. I’ll be under a tree near the shore. This will be leisurely and we’ll paddle together around the island. I’ve 2 spare single kayaks etc for people who’d like to try - first in best dressed.
The waters usually very calm but if the wind is too strong I’ll be cautious and postpone.
It’s due to be cooler this weekend (24C) but bring all over sun protection, hats, and drinking water.
There’s public toilets, beach to launch from, grassed areas and shade trees. Also a public bbq and picnic area and a hotel we’ll stop at for a drink
I hope to go kayaking regularly at different spots including myponga, Happy Valley, Hope Valley, Onkaparinga,

Mawson Lakes 5km Walk

Boatdeck Cafe

Meet next to the lake opposite the Boatdeck Cafe for one of 3 different walks around lakes and wetlands of Mawson Lakes. Each walk is an approx 5km circuit and takes about 1 hour. It's an easy route, reasonably flat and please be considerate to others by arriving a few minutes early as we'd like to leave on time!

As this is a circular route, we can cater for any fitness level or speed. We always catch up afterwards to relax, chat and have a coffee or meal at the Boatdeck Cafe.

If, when we ARRIVE, the WEATHER is not the best (TOO HOT OR TOO WET), it may be decided to skip the walk and go straight to the Boatdeck Cafe! (So far this has only happened ONCE, so if you turn up there's bound to be someone else there too!)
