Dunkeld is a truly magical regional environment within the Southern Grampians and lends a unique charm to this sought-after highlight of the ASQ’s touring calendar.
These walks provide a range of experiences: Immersion into the beauty of nature-sound and sight and our deep connection with place and people, flora and fauna.
The walk provides opportunity for silence and/or conversation-exploring mutual experiences and learning from our story of journey around transitions in life, or quietly being with what is taking place in our own season of life. It may be just the simple pleasure of unencumbered walking and being open to what transpires within and among us as a pilgrim.
Cost includes all accommodation, meals, guide and transport. Please enquire about a place: Residential and non-residential are limited to 20 persons.
