Join our Mount Gambier Weekend Walk for Women on the Honan Mint Trail!

Tickets are $25pp plus Eventbite booking fee and $2 from each ticket sold goes to South East Junction Mental Health Activity and Resource Service. You must book online before the event.

We will meet at the Mount Gambier Visitor Centre and drive out tag-a-long style to the start point. There is also a chance to car pool from here with fellow walkers.

We walk to experience positive health outcomes both mentally and physically plus being with nature makes us feel great!

THIS IS RATED AN EASY WALK

There are toilets at this location but not on the trails so please pack zip lock bags/rubbish bag for any toilet paper removal.

Colleen will be your walk leader and will be here to meet you, assisted by our SE leadership team. Our leaders carry group first aid kits, emergency communication devices and are experienced and/or qualified bush walking leaders.

We will walk the Honan Mint Trail from the car park, approximately 1.5 hours / approx 6 km. This trail is undulating, mostly flat and includes a section of boardwalk.

Due to the variability of the weather, the following items will be needed:
– a daypack (25-35 litre) backpack
– 1-2 litres of water
– sun protection (hat, sunnies, suncream) or wet weather gear (we will check the forecast and remind you all what to expect!)
– blister kit/personal medication
– high energy snacks/fruit
– boots/comfortable walking shoes with good grip
– warm clothing for after the walk (jumper/jacket)
– walking poles (optional)

Please ensure you have the minimum gear required as no refunds are possible after booking. If you arrive under prepared without wet weather clothing or the gear listed above, our Leaders have the right to ask you not to walk with us for safety reasons if you do not have the weather appropriate gear with you.

Please ensure you have the minimum gear required as no refunds are possible after booking.

Our walks are all about fun, fitness and friendship – not a personal training session. If we can’t walk and talk at the same time we are walking too fast! And we never leave anyone behind.

If the weather forecast is for extreme weather or a fire ban is issued this walk will be cancelled the day before and fully refunded.
