COMING EVENTS

Steub Trail

Our next bushwalk:

Saturday February 4th

The weather for this Saturday sounds like a perfect autumn day for a lovely bushwalk. The plan is to meander our way around the pleasant Steub Trail near the top of Mt Lofty. The total walk will be about 6½ km and is likely to take us 2 hours, not counting time for a break in the middle at the Café at the Cleland Wildlife Park.

  • The Steub Trail zig-zags back and forth and is designed so that there are no steep sections.

  • Meet at the church at 9:00am.  We should be back at the church around 12:30pm.

  • Email office@glenungachurch.com.au if coming.  (If we know you are coming then you’ll be advised if there are any changes. We can also make sure there are enough cars.)

Sturt Gorge, from Murrays Hill Rd

Saturday October 29th

Weather permitting, we are going to dive into the lovely Sturt Gorge. 

First we walk along the top of the Gorge and check out the view and the kangaroos. Then we descend steeply into the Gorge and walk along the lovely Sturt Creek, crossing the creek three times on stepping stones.  So this is for those who are sure-footed.  The trail is often undulating, so you need to be relatively fit to join this walk. Length of walk: 6.4 kms

  • Meet at the church at 9:00am.  We should be back by 12:45 – 1:00pm.

  • Bring some lunch to share if you would like to stay and relax together at the church – that part is an optional extra.  All welcome.

Scott Creek: Stringybark-Shingleback Loop

Saturday September 24th

Weather permitting, here is a great chance to stretch out our legs in the expansive Scott Creek Conservation Park.  

 

The walk is undulating at times. Be ready for a bit of uphill work. It is likely to take us about 2½ hours. Let’s see if we can find the ‘Twisted Chimney’ which is all that remains of an old house, now tucked away deep in the bush.

  • Meet at the church at 9:00am.

  • Bring some lunch to share if you would like to stay and relax together back at the church – that part is an optional extra.  All welcome.

Morialta Falls

Saturday September 10th

Weather permitting, let’s check out the lovely Morialta Falls. This walk (with several options of different trails) is one of the best that there is around Adelaide. 

  • Meet at the church at 9:00am. We hope to be back by 12:30pm.

  • The walk will be 6-7 kms, and will most likely take about 2½ hours.  It involves some sturdy climbing work, great views and good photo opportunities.

  • Easier Option: There is the opportunity for a leisurely, mostly level-ground stroll to the bottom of the main waterfall.  This is only about one kilometre.

  • Bring some lunch to share if you would like to stay and relax together back at the church – that part is an optional extra.  All welcome.

Chambers Gully - Woolshed Gully

Saturday August 27th

Weather permitting, we are doing a local walk this time.  Chambers Gully is only 4.5 kms from the church.  The length of the loop we will walk is just under 6 kms.  There is quite a good chance of seeing koalas or kangaroos on this walk. 

This walk does involve a bit of uphill work.  We head into Chambers Gully, then climb to the top via a skinny track around the Sugar Loaf.  We’ll reach the top, admire the view over the city, and then descend into Woolshed Gully. This takes us back to the road, and about a one kilometre walk back to our cars.

  • Meet at the church at 9:00am. We should be back around 12:00pm.  

  • If you wish: Bring some lunch with you and we can share food and eat together back at the church.

Mark Oliphant Conservation Park

Saturday August 13th

Weather permitting, we are planning to explore a relatively new Park near Adelaide. There are 3-4 trails in the Mark Oliphant Conservation Park. Sometimes they are undulating involving a bit of hill climbing, but most of the walking won’t be too difficult.  We are likely to walk about 4-5 kms.

  • Meet at the church at 9:00am. We should be back around 12:00pm.  

  • If you wish: Bring some lunch with you and we can share food and eat together back at the church.
