Walking the Gorge
GRAB your walking shoes and come along to a community bushwalk at the Mossman Gorge on Thursday October 3.
Police Citizens Youth Clubs (PCYC) are getting together with other agencies including the Mossman Youth Centre and police for the walk and invite everyone along from all ages.
PCYC Representative Petrina Neller said walking the Mossman Gorge loop walk is one of their initiatives in closing the gap between indigenous and non- indigenous people.
‘‘ We want to promote health, exercise and getting people out of their homes and mixing with all age groups,’’ she said.
‘‘ Parents, children, everyone is welcome to come along.
‘‘I was a tour guide myself in the past and we hope we can share each other’s knowledge of the land.’’
It is not a race and so all walking will being leisurely; all you need bring is a backpack filled with lunches, a water bottle, and a change of clothes and towel to enjoy a swim at the beautiful Mossman Gorge.
After returning there will be a sausage sizzle and as PCYC is a notfor-profit organisation, donations of sausages, bread and refreshments would be greatly appreciated.
People wanting to j oin the Mossman Gorge Bushwalk can meet at the Mossman Gorge Church at 8.30am.
