Keep on walking 🥾👣

Due to popular demand we are adding extra bushwalking dates to our social calendar.


Last Monday we revealed news about the bushwalks we’re facilitating between June and the end of August. A number sold out within days, while the rest are on the verge of booking out. Therefore, we have decided to add the following hikes to our calendar:


Location: Eastern Suburbs

Coogee Beach to Bondi Beach. Thursday 9 July @ midday


Location: Sydney CBD

Sydney City walk. Friday 24 July @ midday


Location: Northern Beaches

Manly Beach to North Head Sanctuary. Thursday 6 August @ midday


In line with respecting the need to social distance, each walk has been limited to 11 attendees (including one Gig Buddies Sydney staff member). Attendance is free - click on the links listed above to join us.

And, as mentioned, we still have limited spots available for the following walks: Lane Cove Valley walk, Friday 7 August (6 places available); Cronulla Beach Walk, Saturday 8 August (3 places available); Hornsby Blue Gum Walk, Saturday 15 August (4 places available).

Eyes down


In other news, this week buddies are invited to join us online for virtual bingo and our ‘numbers, numbers, numbers’ quiz.

With regards to this week’s quiz, this is not a maths test - we are not going back to school! Rather, all answers are numerical. For example, do you know the year when Neighbours first appeared on Australian TV? Do you know how old Scott Morrison is?
