    About the Calorie Calculator

    Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.

    When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.

    Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

    About

    From the parking lot of the Southside Base Gate, walk over the Swing Bridge, along Mullet Bay Road and into Ferry Reach. Walk to the Martello Tower, then along the old Railway Trail on the northern shore. For some spectacular views turn right off the Trail at the spot marked with two ribbons and walk to the hilltop, then descend near the Muslim Graveyard. For those not wanting to climb the hill (it’s a scramble in places), continue along the Trail to the Oil Docks, turn right at the fence, and then rejoin Ferry Reach Road. From Ferry Reach Road return to your starting point at the Base Gate along Mullet Bay Road.
