Blackheath Walkers


Blackheath Walkers are into six years of walking as a local community group. Many friendships have been formed. We walk in a variety of amazing locations around Blackheath village each Monday at 8.30am.

This is a health walk and the purpose of this program is to promote both regular exercise and create an activity which provides motivation to continue. Walking with a group is more social and less ‘have to’.

Blackheath Walkers meet at Jubilee Park next to Blackheath Oval on Mondays at 8.30am. After the weekly walk, walkers are encouraged to bring their morning tea, and to mix with the entire group. For further information please contact BANC on 4787 7770.
