Training Session 23 March 2014
Our next session will be on Sunday 23 March at Mt Macedon. We will meet at the Macedon train station and the corner of Smith and Victoria St. (note - Macedon and not Mt Macedon). Our meeting time is 9:30am so that we can be underway by 10am.
We will combine two walks - 1. Scout Camp Rd to Bawden Rd/Douglas Rd (1.4 km) rated easy to moderate, then 2. Bawden Rd/Douglas to Mount Macedon Memorial Cross (2.2 km) which is rated moderate to difficult and returning back to Scout Camp Rd
This is quite a challenging walk with a total distance of approximately 7km. There is a café when we reach the summit and depending on time and availability we will be able to access these facilities. We will then return via the same route to the car park. Our meeting time is 9:30 am and we expect to be finished by 2:30pm.
ANZAC Day 2015
When the former Prime Minister the Hon. Paul Keating visited Kokoda in 1992, he fell to his knees and kissed the ground.
"If the Australian Nation was founded at Gallipoli, then its depth and soul were confirmed in its defence at Kokoda"
As we commemorate the centenary of the Gallipoli landing and the founding of the ANZAC legend, join us at the Isurava Memorial for the Official ANZAC Day Dawn Service in 2015.
