Event description
Join us on the 8th May on our Mother's Day event at Lake Wainamu!

About this event

For the 4th time, we are going back to Bethells for a walk around Lake Wainamu. This time, we are taking mum’s along for some forest bathing! It’s a healthy (or added) option to your usual Mother’s Day celebration and it’s free!

Highlights include large sand dunes, streams, lake, bush and waterfalls. Feel free to invite other mums, they don't have to be Pinoys to join. This is an easy track, suits mums of all fitness levels. While the even is to honour our mums out there, this invite is for everyone! And yes, dads and the rest of the pamilya can join as well.

Duration: About 3 hours including stops and salo-salo lunch at Bethells Beach.

Distance: about 8 km

Difficulty: Easier than average (2 on 1-5 scale of difficulty for day walks). Mostly flat with some gentle undulating sections and optional steep climbs up sand dunes. Track around lake is well formed and stream is shallow and sandy.

We'll walk at our usual casual moderate pace with stops at places of interest along the way. Note that part of the track around lake (southwest corner) passes through private property, so please stay on the track at all times.

Weather forecast Issued: will update closer to the time.
