Social Distancing and Good Hygiene
Before, during and after the walk, please practice social distancing and good hygiene to minimise the risk of infection:
• Maintain a distance of 1.5 metres between yourself and other walkers.
• Do not share food / water / equipment, or shake hands.
• Use tissues and do not dispose of these in the bush.
• Cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow.
• Wash hands or use sanitiser after contact with shared surfaces (or wear gloves), e.g. gates, fences, benches, petrol pumps.
• Proceed with caution when using public toilets.
If you are not able to practice good hygiene, your Leader will ask you to leave the walk.
You need to make your own way to and from the walk location.
During the pandemic, the leader will not arrange car pooling. If you choose to car pool with a friend or family member, you do so at your own risk.
If you choose to use public transport, you do so at your own risk, but please follow social distancing and good hygiene practices as much as possible.
If you cannot make your own way to the start of the walk, please DO NOT book.
This Masons Falls Circuit is a pleasant hike through the regenerating bush that clearly shows the impact of the Kinglake fires. There are large parts of the track that did seem to escape the tragic fires. Hopefully the Masons Falls has some water in it at this time of year!
