Clunes Trekkers started as a 4 person team who decided to trek for a good cause, Fred Hollows foundation (Coastrek), a 30 kilometre charity walk. We enjoyed it so much that we have now started this group, Clunes Trekkers, for like minded people who are keen to get out and explore the great outdoors within our beautiful landscape around the district. We have scheduled monthly walks, from a short 2-5 kilometre walk to the more challenging 20-30 kilometres. So hope you can join us and “Love where you live”
