Walk­ing the Gorge

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

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.

For more in­for­ma­tion on the PCYC bush­walk or to make a do­na­tion con­tact Pet­rina Neller on 0497 903 165.
