*Report for for February 2021 - Nepean River Bridge to Bridge

 

Thank you to all those who attended our first walk for 2021, bridge to bridge Nepean River.

On Friday February 5th, 2021, twenty-one walkers attended the Rouse Hill Probus monthly walk. We set out from the East Bank centre crossed the first bridge (M4) over the river to the Emu Plains side and down onto the riverbank. This stretch was a pleasant walk along the river for approx. 3km arriving at the Yandhai Nepean Crossing (second bridge). After resting we continue along the east side of the river back returning to the car park.

After a short rest we then headed for the Nepean Rowing Club for lunch.

The walk covered approximately 6.6km.

Well done to all,

Thank-you.  Ralph and Marie.

* November Report - Hawkesbury Visitor Information Centre

Thank you to all those who walked in November around the picturesque Richmond Streets.

On Friday November 6 2020, 19 walkers attended the Rouse Hill Probus monthly walk. We set out from the Hawkesbury Visitors Information Centre (opposite RAAF Base Richmond) towards the township of Richmond. The walking path passed through the magnificent arch way of trees leading into Richmond. We diverted down Bourke St to Francis St passing the flowering Jacarandas and the historical homes that are still standing (e.g. Benson House built in 1840s).  We turned back to town passing Richmond RSL and the panorama of the Hawksbury ridge. Richmond Park with its picket fence, provided a morning tea break and light entertainment. We were entertained by the council’s lawn-mower precision driving team in action. After a break we headed back to the start of our walk along March St, Moray St, and Windsor St back to the Hawkesbury Visitors Information Centre.

The walk covered approximately 6.5km.

Well done to all,

Thank-you.  Ralph and Marie.
