Centenary Trail Walking Group | Canberra
Join us to take on the Canberra Centenary Trail, walking a different section of the trail each month. Come along for the walk and learn more about Fortem Australia and what activities and services we provide, as well as meet new people. Our walking group is also a great way to connect and socialise with other local first responders, to boost your social well-being by broadening social networks and range of relationships with others in the wider community. Walking is also a great way of improving & maintaining physical health and relieving stress and tension for your mental health. This is a great opportunity to meet other people who enjoy walking and being outdoors, as well as to explore some of Canberra’s urban and rural scenery plus iconic sites and hidden treasures.
