Meeting Point: The Exchange Hotel Balmain Meeting Time: 10 am This is an easy but adventurous photowalk, there are stairs and being Sydney, some streets are hilly. Moderate fitness is recommended. Please wear appropriate shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. The session will go ahead in most weather conditions. In the case of extreme weather, we will contact you prior to the workshop and reschedule.
最多可有6位年满10周岁的参与者参加。 The routes we take for our Photowalk are easy to walk on. They criss-cross between footpaths, parks, and pedestrian areas through Balmain. Moderate fitness is recommended as there are stairs and some low-grade hilly pathways.
You can get snacks, coffee and have the opportunity to use a bathroom before we head off on our adventure and when we return. We will explore the backstreets and hidden passageways of Balmain and will be away from cafes and pub, hence water will be useful as would a small snack like an apple.
