MESAC | WALKING | Winter Solstice Beachside | Sunday 19 June 2022 | meet 9.55am for 10am start

[Edited extract from public address]

Join this return of MESAC's annual winter solstice walk beachside, from McGregors Rock, (top end of the sanctuary opposite McGregor Ave, on Beach Rd, Beaumaris), to the Ricketts Point Tea House car park.

The walk is about a kilometre long and lasts about an hour. At this time of the year a wind jacket and footwear suitable for the sand and some reef time, is recommended.

Subjects discussed along the way will, as usual, include our local geography and erosion, (Prof John Buckeridge), some Aboriginal history, (Ray Lewis) and our local fossil heritage (Murray Orr).

Where: Meet on the footpath, top of the steps down to the beach. Parking in McGregor’s Rd near the start of the walk, and Haydens Rd at the end, (near the Tea House), is free. Parking in the public car parks north and south of the Tea House is about $5 an hour for non-Bayside residents.
Considerations: Communicating beachside with wind and wave noise and more, can be difficult at times. Event proceeds despite any adverse weather or tidal conditions
Cost: Free
Bookings: numbers are limited to 35 registrations. Register online via Trybooking
