Saturday Monthly Walks Program
Unless otherwise stated, all walks leave from the Portland Tourist Information Centre, Lee Breakwater Road, Portland. All interested walkers must register their interest by the Thursday prior to the walk. Contact numbers will be taken at time of registration to enable confirmation of meeting location/times or event cancellation.
If you feel a walk is too long we can offer a pick-up service, as many of our walks have car access at various points. Please make inquiries with the contact person for the day. This was you can still enjoy the company of our walking group and accomplish most of the day’s activities.
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.
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.
