Assemble at Bradfield Park on the Western Side (Closer to Luna Park), Milsons Point (on the grass beside Alfred Street South at 3.00pm. The walk will commence after the creative introduction to ‘why we do this walk’. If coming by train exit via Alfred Street (Luna Park). This is a request from the local council due to the work that has already begun to put a lift in to get onto the bridge walk)

The walk will be staggered so as to spread the participants out at the beginning and the end. Please obey the marshals (DD’s) The walk will proceed up the steps, across the Harbour Bridge, up Macquarie St until the State Library. Then walk through the Domain and end up on the lawns opposite the NSW Art Gallery. This is where everyone will receive their patch and then disperse with their club.
