The Board of Walking SA was formed in August last year, and consists of 12 members. The organisation has entered a period of exciting change: adoption of new constitution, development and implementation of a strategic plan, new logo and branding and a new website.

Walking SA is the not-for-profit peak body that leads, promotes and supports all forms of walking in South Australia, including walking for recreation, transport, health, wellbeing, organised events, adventure, environmental appreciation and fun experiences.

Our vision is to see more people walking more often.

Please direct enquiries via our office, or contact Board Chair Cate Mettam.
