This is a group for anyone interested in morning walks and a good coffee and a chat!!!
Morning walks will include such areas as Parks and Beaches within Sydney, as long as there is an espresso bar along the way!!
Early morning walks are a great way to start the day, together with an amazing coffee!!
Looking forward to exploring the outdoors and a good coffee and chat with everybody!!

Joining a walking group is one of the easiest ways to boost health and morale, according to an investigation published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.
Researchers at Britain's University of East Anglia analysed 42 published studies of people who took up organised walking - regular outings that typically lasted less than an hour.
Walkers enjoyed 'statistically significant improvements' in wellbeing compared to their formerly sedentary state, the probe found.
Small but measurable gains were seen in general fitness, blood pressure, resting heart rate, lung power, cholesterol levels, body fat and in a standard test to measure depression.
These are benefits that doctors should point out to sedentary patients, the paper said.
'Walking groups are effective and safe with good adherence and wide-ranging health benefits.'
The published studies, accessed through online databases, involved almost 2,000 people in 14 countries.
The volunteers were assessed before and after joining a walking group, and many had a wide-range of long-term health conditions, ranging from diabetes, arthritis and depression to obesity and Parkinson's disease.
