Day 2 - Emerging Scholars' Network Inaugural Bushwalk
Tuesday 22 November 2023, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM AEDT
To finish the Emerging Scholars Network Workshop for 2023, we have organised a social bushwalk in partnership with Emu Trekkers - Australia's first not-for-profit outdoors tour operator and a licensed Ecopass tour operator in the National Parks around Sydney. This is a great chance to stretch the legs and get to know one another as we hike for 7km on the La Perouse Coastal Track in Kamay Botany Bay National Park. This walk is suitable for people with a moderate level of fitness and will take around 3-4 hours to complete, including rests. Please bring closed shoes with good grip, a bottle of water, sunscreen, and a hat. An alternative social event will be planned in the event of significant wet weather. Please note that there are risks involved in this activity. By registering and attending this hike, it is understood that you have read, understood and considered Emu Trekkers' Waiver and agree to its terms.
