Monday Monthly Walks Program
All interested walkers must register their interest by 3 pm on the day prior to the walk. There will be a maximum of 20 walkers. Contact numbers will be taken at time of registration to enable confirmation of meeting location/times or event cancellation. Carpooling from Portland can also be arranged.
Walking with the FGSWW offers the opportunity to walk with others and share knowledge of the history, terrain, flora and fauna of this beautiful South-West corner of Victoria, which is becoming increasingly popular with locals and visitors to the area. We welcome new members and visitors.
Opt out options have been included for those walkers who would like to participate but not complete the whole planned walk. Please indicate to the contact person at the time of registering if you plan to opt out to assist with transport options.
Walkers are welcome to join in as visitors for up to two walks, after which they are required to join as FGSWW members in order for them to be able to participate in any further walks. Membership forms are available from the FGSWW website or the contact person on the day of the walk. A nominal charge of $3.00 per person/per walk is collected on the day – please have the correct coins. FGSWW is affiliated with Bushwalking Victoria. Individual insurance is available by becoming a member of Bushwalking Victoria at an annual cost of $20- which covers planned walks with the FGSWW plus other affiliated groups.
