Welcome to our 40th Anniversary Year as Walkabout International has been in the forefront of promoting healthy regular exercise, social camaraderie and discovering new places since its inception in 1977. We have conducted over 25,000 walks covering more than two million people-miles – or the equivalent of walking around the equator over 80 times – for tens of thousands of “soles”!
An all-volunteer non-profit 501(c3) organization offers hundreds of local walks each year along with, low-cost day and overnight trips, parties and potlucks, holiday celebrations and other activities. Come join us during our 40th Anniversary Year where your interests lead you while selecting from our numerous walks, hikes and activities.
