Walking Group

10.15am, Wednesday November 14th

Platform 11, Southern Cross Station

Today we will walk from Macaulay (North Melbourne) along the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail, through Docklands/Waterfront City, and then the Capital City Trail along the Harbour Esplanade and through the beautiful Docklands Park.  We will meet at Southern Cross Station Platform 11 in time to catch the 10:27am Upfield line train for the short journey to Macaulay, arriving there at 10:33am.

The walk is about 5½ km, but we may get distracted with a short detour along the way.  It is an easy walk and very flat.  At the conclusion of the walk we will have lunch at a suitable venue before catching our trains home.  All members and wives/partners are welcome. 

Please notify Ray if you intend to come and did not put your name on the list at the October meeting.
