These walks are created by submitting a combination of photos, videos, and text of a walking tour. The information collected via the form below will be used to put together a walk guide that will be displayed and promoted through our website. There are a number of resources including a walk stop description template, walk inspiration examples from past years and also other examples of self-guided walks. Please be as clear and concise as possible when filling out the form below so that we can match your walk stops, descriptions, pictures, videos and maps in the correct order. If you require any assistance please do not hesitate to reach out to us at

Please be sure to practise physical distancing with self-solitary walks either alone or with close family members in uncrowded areas.
