Bushwalkers of Western Australia

Winter

 

Summer

 

Walking is a year round activity. Bushwalkers of Western Australia Inc (BOWA) based in Perth has a complete annual programme. In Winter (May to October) longer walks of up to 20km in length are undertaken. These require a full day and most of the information about walking presented here applies to these walks. From time to time the Winter programme will include, for variety, a shorter half day walk.  In Summer members maintain fitness by shorter walks around the Perth environs which are completed before midday. On almost every Sunday of the year it is possible to sample the experience of walking with our club. How do I get started?

Summer walks are half day walks in and around Perth. These are held on Sundays during the warmer months. They provide a pleasant way to stay fit. Locations such as Fremantle, Cottesloe beach, The Swan River and Herdsman and Joondalup Lakes are popular. Many of these walks are designed to go past a cafe where walkers may pause for a while to enjoy a refreshment. Equipment required for these walks is very basic - shoes, hat, sunscreen and water. Meeting points are as decided by the walk leader and are on the programme. Visitors are welcome - just telephone the walk leader a few days prior.
