Ever wanted to help ANZA Action but did not feel you had the time or experience? Well ANZA Tours have come up with a solution: let your feet do the action.
Come and join our Action Walks. No experience is required, and your donation of $20 to ANZA Action each time you complete a walk goes towards the charities that ANZA Action supports.
Last year, the ANZA Tour committee created entertaining two-hour walks around Singapore for a minimal cost. These walks were highly received and were advertised in the magazine under the tour section and on the e-news. Due to the walks popularity we’ve become very ambitious, tossing around the idea of how to walk around the whole of Singapore following the coast line.
Unfortunately, after investigating proposed routes we came to the realisation that most of our walking would be done on roads – that may be potentially dangerous, and without shade – so we’re on to plan B.
We have now created several stimulating walks in different locations around Singapore. Keep your eyes out for the advertised dates. Our walks are leisurely, however they may sometimes include hills and getting wet depending on the weather as we walk – rain or shine.
We have kept the start time to 9am to include as many people as possible, and will generally walk between five and ten kilometres. Bring your smile and adventurous spirt as the tours motto is ‘You never know where you will end up’. Come and meet like-minded people, enjoy a chat, some exercise and give back to ANZA Action. We will look forward to seeing you.
First walk: Marina Reservoir Action Walk
Date: Tuesday 11 April
Join ANZA Tours on our first Action Walk for the year and enjoy a delightful morning exploring the Marina Reservoir Route. Letting our feet do the work while we enjoy each other’s company and discover new areas of Singapore, Action walks have been created for members and their friends as a way to donate to ANZA Action.
Starting at Stadium MRT, we will begin the adventure walking towards the Singapore Sports Hub, a world-class integrated sports, entertainment and lifestyle hub, then proceed along the Tanjong Rhu Promenade – where we will follow along the edge of the reservoir and appreciate stunning views of the city. Around to Marina Barrage, Singapore’s fifteenth reservoir, and the first in the heart of the city. From here we can take breath-taking pictures of The Financial District Skyline and The Gardens by the Bay Supertree Grove and conservatories.
After a short stop for coffee – at your own expense – we head over the Helix Bridge to The Youth Olympic Park – the first art park in Singapore. Passing the Singapore Flyer, one of the world’s largest observation wheels, we will continue our journey into the financial district, and end our walk at Raffles Place MRT. Please wear comfortable walking shoes, bring a hat, water and be prepared for rain. The walk is graded easy and is approximately 6.5 kilometres.
