Saturday Morning Walks Program

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. 

 

Walkers Note: Opt-out options can be 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 and approx meeting time arrangements.

Walkers are invited to participate for two walks prior to joining as FGSWW members.  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 through Bushwalking Victoria at an annual cost of $20- which covers planned walks with the FGSWW plus other affiliated groups.
