Description:
Loftus to Heathcote walk - Sunday 23rd October.

This is a medium level walk in the Royal National Park.
about 10km in length. Takes about 4.5 hours.

A nice walk in our oldest NP with walking up to some ridges and with some valley views.

50 minutes by train from Central.

Plan is to get a train to Loftus, then a tram to NP entrance above Audley (to cut out a 45 minute boring road bash). Then leisurely walking to Heathcote Station, then train back to Sydney.

This might be the last chance to walk in the National Park before end of semester as once summer sets in the park walks can be a bit too hot. Sunday's forecast is for mostly sunny - 20 degrees - with only a small chance of a shower.

Train fare is $2.50 for whole day plus $4 for tram ($3 for students).

Meeting details will be sent once you sign up but it will be at a reasonable time in the morning - not too early!

You will need good shoes (Volleys are OK), lunch, at least 1.5 Litres water. Maybe best to have some sort of rain cover, just in case!
