Ease into Spring with this soothing walk where we will visit four of Bowen’s loveliest waterfalls. The cleansing nature of water symbolizes the ability to release and renew. This time of year is ideal for letting go of what was and allowing the seeds of new ideas and new creations to grow. We will take some time to honour what is new in each of our lives and allow the cascading water to rejuvenate our souls. This will be a slow and pleasant walk, but please note there is a short section (about 500 m distance) that involves gaining some elevation.
