If you enjoy the great outdoors, then Bushwalking is one of the best ways to experience and appreciate what nature has to offer. Numerous benefits, including physical challenges, skills development and the opportunity to meet new people.
We offer a full program of bushwalking activities throughout the year, ranging from our local easy evening walks, to longer backpacking trips, with many options in between. The club suits all levels of bushwalking and hiking experience. Activities are graded according to difficulty and led by committed and experienced volunteer leaders.
Visitors are welcome to join us on activities, without being a fully-paid member. We just ask that you pay $5/day as a contribution to the club.

Each person needs to feel that they are not at risk or presenting a risk to others because of their individual circumstances. For this reason the decision to car pool, according to the guidelines, must be a personal one and individuals are welcome to make their own travel arrangements.
Please aware and follow all guidelines regarding the border bubble and the limitations this imposes on your movements. The club cannot take responsibility for your decisions with these ever changing guidelines

The safety and health of our members and the wider community in general must be our first priority as we follow the advice of health experts.
It is strongly recommended that all participants have ambulance cover for their own wellbeing.
We ask all participants to carry a completed Emergency Details form in the top of their pack in case of an emergency. This will only accessed by the leader in case of a genuine emergency
Walk Leaders reserve the right to change the walk route on the day depending on prevailing conditions and altered circumstances.
Members and visitors must check with the leader that their fitness and experience suit the walk. A walk leader can refuse permission for any person to take part in his/her activity.
A reminder that if you intend participating in any of the day activities listed in the Activities Program, you are generally required to book in with the leader by Wednesday, and for overnight walks at least 7 days prior to trip.
If you haven’t walked with a leader before, you must call them to book in for an activity (not email or sms). This is so the leader can get an idea of your suitability for the activity – that is, your health/fitness and that you have an appropriate level of experience for that activity. They will also be able to fill you in on any key risks, or gear requirements. Our leaders don’t want to grill you, but we need to ensure everyone is able to safely participate.
