10.15am, Wednesday 8th May
Manningham Club, 1 Thompsons Road, Bulleen (Melway 32 D10)
Today, we will walk along the Koonung Creek Trail in Bulleeen and North Balwyn. As this is not far from our home territory, we will meet at the foot of the big staircase to the main entrance of the Manningham Club at 10:15am. However, if anyone does not have transport, please call me and I will arrange a lift.
We will walk through Koonung Park and cross over the freeway footbridge into Koonung Creek Reserve, where we will follow the trail towards Doncaster Road before heading back to our starting point for lunch. The walk is about 5½ km flat trail. As always, all members, visitors and wives/partners are welcome.
Please notify Ray if you intend to come and did not put your name on the list at the April meeting.
