The successful Hiking Expo event was on April 15th in Belair National Park. The day consisted of guided walks and 35 exhibitors promoting walking opportunities including trails, outdoor gear, walking clubs and walking groups and tours.
We had indications of upwards of 2,500 attending on the day but unfortunately with poor weather that weekend this was reduced to about 500.
The event was possible through the financial seed funding and many volunteers from our key event partners the Friends of the Heysen Trail, ARPA Bushwalkers and Heart Foundation Walking. Thanks to the financial generosity of member clubs and other revenue generation on the day we were able to break even financially.
