10.15am, Wednesday 13th March
Box Hill Tram Terminus (Melway 47 C9)
Today we will walk from Box Hill to Balwyn. We will meet at the Box Hill Tram Terminus (meet near the pedestrian lights at the city end). We will then walk to Balwyn, but please note, this is not just a simple walk along Whitehorse Road with all its traffic, as we will wander along many interesting streets and a few parks before ending at Colombo’s, where we will have lunch. The walk is about 5½km and includes a few small, but very manageable hills that will not test us.
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 February meeting.
