Walk, Snap, Explore in June | Illawarra
This Walk, Snap, Explore activity involves ocean views, spectacular rock formations, and unspoilt beaches. The Coast Walk has three sections, made up of a series of shorter walks/cycling paths from the mouth of the Minnamurra River south through Kiama to Gerringong’s Werri Beach. Offering a mix of sealed paths, grassed tracks and beach walking, the hills are gentle enough for most fitness levels. You can use your phones to snap some photos along the way. The walk will take approximately 1 and 1/2 hours. After the walk, participants can grab a free coffee and cake, and have a chat! On the way back we will cheat a little bit by hopping on the train.
