2016s 5 Lands Walk will mark the eleventh anniversary of the event and is expected to become one of the Coast’s biggest tourism events thanks to the inclusion of new public transport options for Sydney-siders to get involved, this June 25.
Loosely based on Italy’s fabled Cinque Terre walk, this year’s Walk will have additional public transport with the inclusion of Palm Beach Ferry Services to Ettalong and buses from there to Terrigal and MacMasters Beaches. The family friendly event is timed to correspond with the peak of the whale migration season and features free transport between all stages of the 10km walk. According to President of the 5 Lands Walk Organising Committee, Mr Con Ryan, the Walk has become a calendar highlight for the Central Coast.
“Free for all to participate, the event links people to people and people to place in a way rarely found these days. “It is not a race but an opportunity for all to enjoy, learn and participate at their own pace. “We welcome the opportunity this year for participants from the Northern Beaches and from our own Peninsula to join in, through the initiative of Palm Beach Ferries and Busways combining resources to provide convenient ferry/ bus connections on the day. “The 2016, 5 Lands Walk will be the best yet and all are welcome, so we encourage you to mark June 25 on your calendar now and invite your friends to join you for a day they will never forget,” Mr Ryan said.
