To ensure the safety and enjoyment of your experience please read the following guidelines:

  1. Please observe social distancing practices, maintain personal hygiene (apply hand sanitiser and protect others if you cough/sneeze, and do not share drink bottles, eating utensils, other personal items and equipment.
  2. You are responsible for your own fitness and preparedness for the walk:
    • This includes wearing suitable footwear with adequate tread (this could be walking shoes, running shoes or hiking boots).
    • If you have any questions about your fitness or the requirements of the walk, please ask us prior to commencing the walk. People with medication needs and / or special requirements should discuss their needs with us.
    • You are responsible for carrying your own food (snacks), water (suggest 1-2L), some basic first aid equipment (suggest for blisters), and any required medication.
  3. The Guided Walks are a group experience. There will be walk leader at the start of the group, and another at the back of the group. The group may spread out, but will regularly re-group, typically at junctions or the top of hills.
    • You should check with the walk leader before walking on ahead, and if you need to leave the group (for toileting, to withdraw from the walk, taking photos, or any other reason) please advise either the walk leader at the start of back of the group.
    • You should ensure that walkers behind you are kept within eyesight.
    • Please don’t bring pets along, as they may not be welcomed by others in the group. On walks marked ‘Dog Friendly’ you are welcome to walk your dog provided they remain under your control and on a lead no more than 2 metres in length, that you bring disposable bags to clean up your dog’s faeces and be mindful of other guided walk participants and trail users.
      Our friends at National Parks and Wildlife Service SA will have free disposable bags available at their stall.
    • Please don’t smoke or leave any litter.

The event is presented by Walking SA in conjunction with:
