Candlebark Bush Loop - Short Hike








This short walk is accessible via public transport from Eltham Station, and is a great triple loop on mostly flat easier paths. A smaller hill in the middle of the walk is a little tester, but the Eltham area is great for walking and this social morning out will have you listening to birds, looking for Kangaroos, and enjoying your time outdoors. Enjoy a snack in the parklands and chat with our wonderful guides.
Do you want to add more hiking into your weekend and enjoy a healthier and fitter lifestyle? We know that sometimes you just want to get out, catch up, have a social morning and get a little more confident on the trail. Our short walks are your best opportunity when you don’t have a whole day to spare, and we’ll have some morning snacks available to keep you going. It’s a great way to start your day, have a little exploration and get you feeling happier and healthier!
Our short hikes are usually less than 10km and graded 2-5 with 2 being at the easier end of the scale and perfect for beginners and those just wanting a social stroll. They are a great way to gain confidence, meet like minded people and start a journey of hiking. Our 4-5 hikes will have a few more undulations and a quicker pace, and suitable for those with moderate to good fitness and there is always the chance of an extra TSA ‘let’s go this way’ element.
The best part about our short hikes is when you become a TSA member you get one of these hikes FREE every month! Check out our MEMBERSHIP page, and get motivated, add accountability and improve mind and body with some adventure time in nature.
It’s a great way to prepare for a bigger trip, and even if you are not training and you want to climb some hills anyway, it’s a simple decision to become a member, and get your FREE short hike included. Plus receive many other discounts and offerings when you join part of an awesome community of doers who are living their best lives, and taking part in awesome experiences!
