Deposit and Refund Policy

A $200 deposit secures your booking.

The deposit is non-refundable because, once your booking is confirmed, Walkabout Park will turn away other business for that day.

In the event of bad weather, your deposit is transferrable to another date or to be used as credit against another booking.

Wet Weather Policy

Make sure the students and teachers  bring their rain gear.

Except in extreme weather, the program goes ahead in the rain.

If the weather is expected to be too extreme for the rangers to be able to run the program, or if it might be dangerous, Walkabout Park will contact you to reschedule your excursion or give you a credit for a future excursion.

If Walkabout Park does not assess the wet weather conditions to be too extreme but you would like to reschedule anyway, we respect this and will work with you to find an alternate date.

Calga weather patterns are quite different to the Sydney Basin and the Central Coast. It can be pouring with rain down the road in Kariong or Hornsby, but dry in Calga.

You can contact Walkabout Park up to 5 days before your excursion to make general enquiries about expected weather conditions, with more specific weather information available 48 hours prior.
