Umina - Pearl Beach - Patonga Walk Sunday 19th March.

A nice easy walk of about 10km return and includes 2 beaches.

Train to Woy Woy Station then short bus ride to Mt Ettalong for the walk start.
(You can drive up if you want - just let me know if you want to do that and if you are wiling to give others a lift from Woy Woy Station - about a 15 minute drive to the walk start).

Safe swimming at Umina Beach and south end of Pearl Beach if you want (NO swimming at Patonga - estuarine sharks, or at north end of Pearl Beach - dangerous location).
Walk is partly through Brisbane Water National Park. Will include Crommelin Arboretum at Pearl Beach.

What to bring:
At least 1.5 Litres water,
Lunch - although there is the option of buying a fish and chip lunch at Patonga if you don't mind queuing at a popular shop for 15 minutes.
Good shoes, volleys are OK as are runners.
Swim Clothes and towel if you want to swim.

Weather forecast for Woy Woy so far indicates it should be an OK day.

Train fare is $2-50 return if you have an Opal card, and the $2-50 fare will also include any bus fares.

Should be back in Sydney by 5.45pm. Maybe even earlier.

Meeting time and place will be advised to you once you sign up for the walk. Members only, please.

Please note that smoking is not allowed on trains, nor in National Parks. I also prefer that smokers not smoke throughout the whole walk.

Also, if you miss out on a place on this walk, please do not just turn up at the station hoping a place will come up.
