The Border Bushwalking Club was formed at a public meeting in June 1987, and its first walk to Mt Table Top (just north of Albury) on 18 June 1978 attracted over 100 participants! To celebrate our 45th birthday, we will again gather at Table Top on Saturday 7 October, and we hope many present and former members will join us.  The event will take place at Peregrines at Table Top, and we thank the owner, Mr Roger Paterson, for allowing us to use it.

There will be a choice of two walks in the morning: the wildflower walk which is about 5 km and easy, or the wildflower walk with Sugar Loaf extension, which is about 7 km and graded hard from the junction with Wildflower. It has steep ups and downs but with spectacular views. You will need suitable footwear and gear if you are walking.

If you do not wish to walk, you are welcome to come after 11.30 am to relax, reminisce and catch up with friends old and new.

Please BYO food, drinks and chairs.

There will be car pooling from Albury, meeting at the Harvey Norman Centre car park, Borella Road, Albury at 8.15 am. Please park at the Borella Road end of the car park. BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL for the walks and car pooling, please contact Sandy by email <[email protected]> and tell her if you are willing to take a car.

There is an entry fee to enter the property and the Club will pay this for those who join the car pool. If you wish to travel independently, there is a charge of $20 per vehicle to enter the property.

To reach Peregrines, follow the freeway north from Albury and take the Olympic Highway exit. Continue for 5.5 km and turn right into Rodgers Road (near the Paintball centre and immediately before the ‘Five Mates’ bridge across the railway) then immediately turn left into Paterson Road and follow signs to Peregrines. Do not go via Kalawa Homestead. There is a map at peregrines_location (kalawa.com.au)

Please pass this message on to any former members you know.
