Walking Since 1939

Summer in the City: Thursday Evening Urban Walk 8/2


Distance: Around 6-9 km
Time: Around 2 hours
Bring your Myki.
You must book in to join this walk (see below).

Our popular Thursday evening summer urban hikes are on again during February and March in 2024!
These hikes start and finish at a railway station in inner Melbourne. Each hike will have a different starting and finishing location; so it is important that attendees are on WhatsApp; the starting location will be firmed up as each hike approaches. Melbourne Metro does have a penchant for cancellations, line shutdowns and long, unexplained delays, which may mean things can change pretty quick at the last minute, and the only way to reach everyone is via WhatsApp.
We hike for two hours, and then retire to a pub or restaurant for a light meal.
Bring your Myki . . . you never know where you’ll end up.
These hikes are very popular, and are something of a social event as well as a hiking event. Your hike leader, Craig, has a repertoire of hikes that are sure to appeal, taking in rivers, ritzy suburbs, bayside, a bit of history and even a ghoulish trip through a cemetery! Come along and catch up with old friends and make new ones, but please; these hikes are not city strolls. You will need to keep up!
Punctuality is important; although I do not wait for latecomers, I can provide a few minutes grace due to train delays only. However, these hikes simply do not work if we are waiting for long, so generally we have to go.


Make your own way to the walk location by car or public transport (your choice).
