As previously mentioned, we are hoping some Croakey contributors and readers will join us for a #CroakeyGO event in Adelaide on Sunday morning (22nd October).
#CroakeyGO is a form of walking journalism – as we walk, we will talk and share health discussions and news via Twitter, Periscope and Facebook.
The walk on Sunday is co-hosted by the South Australian branch of the Public Health Association of Australia and is being held in association with the SA State Population Health Conference on Saturday 21 October.
Thanks to Aimee Brownbill from the University of Adelaide, and one of the walk’s organisers for this update on the itinerary below (read more here).

We will meet at the Adelaide University Footbridge at 9.15am for a 9.30am start. Our walk will be easy paced and accessible, taking approximately 2.5 hours, stops included. We will trail along the Karrawirra Parri (River Torrens), through the CBD and parklands, including the spectacular Botanical Gardens of South Australia.
The Botanical Gardens contain many local flora that hold significance to the local Kaurna people who have used these for medicine and food for centuries.
See the River Red Gum, the beauty that can grow over 700 years. Hear how it is used by local Kaurna people for everything!
We will talk about public health, key messages from the 2017 State Population Health Conference and the cultural significance of the lands on which we will be walking and its relation to health and wellbeing for the Kaurna people.
We plan to do a number of Periscope interviews with the #CroakeyGO walkers, so even if you can’t make it to Adelaide, please consider joining us virtually.
After our walk, please join us for a lunch at a café in vibrant Rundle Street were we can further chat. Please note lunch is not included and will be at the participants own expense.
What to bring:
- Your walking shoes
- Water bottle
- Phone/camera (not required)
