About Us

Walking With Kids Community

We are a family of four living in Sydney, Australia. We have travelled around Australia and to other countries, with kids in tow, since 2013. With stories from our walks and everyday life, we hope to share our sometimes not so glamorous but always extremely soul satisfying journey to enjoy quality family time in the great outdoors, beyond playgrounds. 

In 2018, we started an informal walking group with our family and friends – parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and carers all coming together to spend more time outdoors with our kids to connect with nature and with our community. Once a month informal group walks as well as occasional reconnaissance walks have kept our walking community busy. 

About our Family

Charis spent some years dabbling in employment law and industrial relations before becoming an educator in the early childhood education and care industry. She enjoys walking, reading, and learning about new things. She writes articles and takes photos for our blog.

When Andrew is not attending hip hop dancing classes or working on his model cars, he’s usually reading or staring out somewhere wondering what to read next. He’s worked in the e-commerce industry for over a decade. Andrew is our photographer.

Our kids love to play and explore. (And fight and chuck tantrums etc). They have tried, tested, and survived all the walks and activities presented on this website.
