"One small step for man, one giant step for mankind."
With these famous words, US astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.
The 50th anniversary of this event is being celebrated on July 16.
Coincidentally and closer to home, a group of men have started a walking group in Goulburn for kinship and support.
The simple motto of The Man Walk group is 'walk, talk, support', but it's a motto that has touched already a chord with thousands of men across the country, since the movement began in Kiama about a year ago.
The Man Walk started when Kiama physiotherapist Mark Burns began walking each weekday morning around Kiama Harbour.
Soon a few friends joined him, then complete strangers also joined in, and The Man Walk Kiama was born.
Men are not known to be forthcoming about health problems, especially in relation to their mental health, so this initiative has been welcomed by the local group who says it's just all about creating a connection.
The Goulburn Man Walk starts at 6am every Tuesday from Marsden Weir.
Four men started walking together this week. They reported they had a "good walk and a yarn" in the pre-dawn stillness along the Wollondilly River.
Organiser of the Goulburn Man Walk Dan Strickland said he decided to start the walk because he received messages from people in the community about it.
"There has been a lot of interest in town about this," Mr Strickland said.
"It is a great way for guys to get together in a relaxed atmosphere to have a casual yarn.
"It is also a comfortable environment to talk about issues like men's suicide in the community.
"There are currently around 150 people interested in doing the walk locally."
Mr Strickland said the Man Walk is a great opportunity to meet like-minded blokes or just to have an early walk and clear the mental cobwebs.

Meantime, the founders have been inundated with messages from across Australia, from people seeking advice about how to set up their own Man Walks.
