Welcome to the
Skyline Walkers Inc. website
Skyline Walkers Inc. is an Adelaide based walking club and is run by a committee of nine people elected from the Club membership. Committee members are elected on a two year basis.
Main Walking Program - April to November
We are a sociable group that walks on Saturday mornings with a 9:00am start (winter walks). We welcome any new members. Approximately 25-45 members (30-60% of our membership) attend each walk with various club members leading the walk each week.
There are two walking groups, 'A3' and 'A2'. The 'A3' walks are approximately 10km over three hours and walked at a good pace on often hilly terrain. The 'A2' walks are approximately 7km over two hours, with some hills. Walks cover areas such as Para Wirra to the north of Adelaide, Kuitpo Forest to the south of Adelaide and the Adelaide Hills.
It is essential that walkers wear appropriate clothing and footwear for walking, carry adequate water, personal medication, a first aid kit and take responsibility for their own safety. Walks are cancelled if the temperature is forecast to be 32 degrees or over.
Longer Walks (Sunday)
There are 3 or 4 longer walks each year of 5-6 hours duration.
Summer Walks - January to March
We also run a summer programme commencing at 8:00am (Saturday's) Time changes to 8.30am in March. These walks are approximately two hours. If the temperature is forecast to be 32 degrees or over the walks are cancelled and we meet at Café Bravo, 144 The Parade, Norwood at 9:30am for coffee and a chat.
Walking Trips Away
Each year the Club organises a long weekend and a week long trip away. In recent years we have had long weekends at Coobowie, Clare, Penola and this year we'll be at Normanville. The week long trips have included Portland (Vic), Quorn, Marion Bay, Little Desert Lodge (Vic) and Kangaroo Island.
Over the years since the club started, we have also arranged overseas walking trips to Japan, Canada and the Orkney Islands in Scotland (these are not annual events - we average about one overseas trip every 5 years). In 2019 we travelled to Ireland.
The activities include - Theatre nights (Adelaide Rep and Stirling Players), a mid-year dinner and AGM/End of Year luncheon, plus Easter Monday and June Long weekend walks and lunch.
