I work in Bairnsdale but I am currently on holidays in Melbourne for a few weeks. If you want a walking buddy I may be able to help you out.
There may also be a walking club to interest you on Tuesday and Thursday mornings leaving from Curves in Bairnsdale. I'm not sure of the time - either 8am or 8:30am which may be a little early. Call Curves on 5152 3808 to double-check.
