Resumption of Walks in the Spring 2021 Program

The Committee has decided that the Spring 2021 program will resume from Friday, 29 October subject to the agreement of program coordinators, on a program-by-program basis. 

  • Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Thursday Strolls and Longer Spring Walks will all resume from Friday, 29 October.
  • Tuesday Short and Easy Spring Walks will resume on 9 November. 
  • Wednesday walks will not recommence until the start of the Summer 2021-22 program on Wednesday 1 December.

As is our practice prior to each walk, those attending are required to ‘sign on’ and are reminded by a walk coordinator that their participation is voluntary and they walk at their own risk.  

While proof of COVID-19 vaccination will not be sought, coordinators are also asked to remind those intending to walk that “if you are not fully vaccinated, your participation could be putting fellow walkers at risk”.

Coordinators will also have a QR code for WFP and all walkers are asked to use the Check in CBR app, if they are able, prior to setting off.

ACT Health advises we should each maintain good hand hygiene, and stay at home if unwell and get tested. In addition, there is a specific physical distancing restriction (or density limit) on those participating in organised outdoor activities of  “1 person per 2 m2". It will be the responsibility of walkers to adhere to this at all times. Mask-wearing on walks will be a matter of individual choice.

Enjoy walking together again and keep safe.

President, ACT Walking for Pleasure

ACT Walking for Pleasure (WFP) is a Canberra-based volunteer‐run association which organises guided walks for members.
There are morning walk programs for Tuesdays (Short and Easy, about 1½ hours), Wednesdays (about 2 hours), Thursdays (Strolls, about 1 hour), Fridays (about 2 hours), Saturdays (2‐4 hours), and Sundays (about 2 hours).
Longer, more demanding walks are offered at least twice a month, usually on Tuesdays or Thursdays.
No bookings are required. You may join suitable morning walks at the starting time and place advised in our quarterly newsletter The Capital Wanderer.
There is no obligation to attend walks, nor any charge for walking apart from an annual membership fee. New walkers may try walks before joining. The emphasis is on relaxation and enjoyment. Please leave your pets at home.
