The German Bushwalking Group is a group of almost 100 men and women, ranging in age from late 40 to 90. They are reasonably fit and enjoy walking through the countryside. All are members of the South Australian German Association.
They meet on alternate Sundays for a programmed walk. We walk for approximately 3 hours, usually in Conservation-and Recreation Parks, on bush tracks and along beaches. There are three walks available for walkers which are graded to suit the level of fitness.
The A-Group tackles long, steep and often difficult walks between 11 and 15 km long. The B-Group walks between 8 and 12 km and the C-Group 6 km.in reasonable terrain. All walks are pre selected and led by competent, experienced Walk Leaders. It is essential for walkers to wear appropriate footwear on walks.
The group also maintains an approximately 17 km long section of the Heysen Trail near Myponga.
For over 125 years the South Australian German Association (German Club) has been promoting and fostering German culture, language, habits and social life in Australia.
