Spring Bay Walkers – Community Group

Share the wonders and pleasures experienced by the Spring Bay Walkers walking group as they explore mainly their local Glamorgan Spring Bay area on the beautiful East Coast of Tasmania. The Spring Bay Walkers delight in walking, companionship and sharing local knowledge while enjoying the sights from Buckland to Swansea (and sometimes beyond), including the towns of Orford and Triabunna, the areas between, and especially the ever changing views and moods of Maria Island.

By prior arrangement with many property owners we are able to visit some places which are not available for public access. Many of our members are well versed in the significant history of the local area which goes back to early 1820’s. 

For those with a Photographic interest, our venues always provide much opportunity for photograph taking.

Our walks cater for all, from the fully energetic to those who for whatever reason are more inclined to amble. While The Spring Bay Walkers is a local Community group, anyone visiting the Area is more than welcome to join in as well, not just those who live here. The organisers are all volunteers from the Community .

Walks are on Thursday mornings and those who wish to walk can meet either in Orford or Triabunna depending on the destination, between 9.30 and 9.40 am. Car Pooling is available, depending on where we drive to a small fee may be applicable to the driver to cover petrol costs.
