Walking Tour Bundles
We have put together ‘walking tour bundles’ for people to use while social-distancing outdoors to connect them with nature and explore some of the incredible natural spaces, history and culture that Holdfast Bay has to offer.
We know that spending time outdoors helps to improve people’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and in the current situation it is so important that people stay connected and spend time outside. We welcome people to use these bundles to encourage them to get out and about.
You can download them here or pick them up from select local cafes across Holdfast Bay
