Guests

If you want to participate in an event as a guest you must email us. Your details will be forwarded to the Leader who will then contact you to assess your level of experience and determine if the event is appropriate for you. If you are approved to participate, download the Guest Walker Form and sign the acknowledgement of risk, then present the completed form plus the $5 participation fee to the Leader at the meeting point.

Your details will be forwarded to the Leader who will then contact you and generally approve your participation. In this case the $5 participation fee will be waived.

Things You Need To Know

  1. The majority of our events involve car pooling and it is expected that each passenger will contribute to the cost of fuel by making a small donation to their driver, normally $5 or $10 depending on the distance. Our events often conclude with a visit to a local café for refreshments before returning to Werribee.
  2. The rating of a walk is based on the most challenging aspect of the track as determined by our Walk Rating Scheme. Apart from distance, the rating may be influenced by the conditions in one section and therefore not indicative of the entire walk. The walk preview should provide sufficient details for you to determine if the walk is within your capability.
  3. Typically on an event you will need a backpack, good walking shoes or boots, 2-3 litres of water, lunch, snacks, and your own small first aid kit including any personal medications you may need. Depending on the time of year you might also need sunscreen and a hat or cap. We also recommend a lightweight rain coat or poncho that can be stored in your backpack.
