Bass Coast Strollers walking group was established in May 1998 for men and women interested in light to medium walking exercise with a social aspect as well. We organise regular walks every Monday morning except Christmas holidays and Easter, followed by a picnic lunch. We offer a variety of walks , usually graded easy, sometimes medium, with options of an hour (approx 4kms) or 2.5 to 3 hours ( between 8 and 10 kms, sometimes more- maybe 12km eg Rail Trails) where possible, mostly within the Bass Coast Shire. They may be bush or beach, tracks or railtrails etc. Occasionally we have day trips into neighbouring shires and also offer trips away of between 1 and 4 nights around the state, 2 or 3 times a year, staying in modest cost accommodation.
Various social events are organised through the year, including Australia Day lunch to start the year, celebrating the big"0" birthdays with a special lunch, and an evening progressive dinner when members walk to the 3 different courses supplied by members.
Prospective members are welcome to join us for 3 walks before deciding if they would like to join. Annual fees are $40. Most of this goes to membership fees and insurance through Bushwalking Vic., with which we are a member club. Anyone who would like to participate is asked to please make prior contact (see "contact" )
