Along with the rest of the community, Walking SA is concerned about and monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and are thinking of you, your families and friends. The safety and health of our members, volunteers, supporters, staff and the South Australian community are our first priority – we are following the advice of health experts and government.
Can you go for a walk?
7 April 2020: During COVID-19 social distancing going for a walk in your neighbourhood or a nearby national park is OK, provided you are well, not in self isolation and follow social distancing guidelines. Find a trail near you for a short walk.
Walking SA activities
Further to increasing COVID-19 restrictions, please note that all Walking SA activities have been cancelled, postponed or have taken on a non-face-to-face format until the end of June 2020 or until further notice.
Walking SA administration and support is continuing remotely but the office at Marleston is now closed until further notice.
Advice to bushwalking and outdoors clubs
The Walking SA Board advises all bushwalking and outdoors clubs to:
- Postpone or cancel face-to-face events, meetings and activities at least until the end of June 2020.
- Remove activities listed on websites or mark them as cancelled with an explanation and do not distribute activity programs until the end of June 2020.
- Follow South Australian state government directions, rules and advice on COVID-19.
For the future
We look forward to everyone resuming and enjoying bushwalking and outdoor activities when it is safe and appropriate to do so.
