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. Otherwise refer to the Join or Renew page for our membership application form.
We have also compiled a list of faqs in addition to the following key points.
Generally you should book in with the leader by calling them the Sunday/Monday to Wednesday the week leading up to the activity, and for overnight walks at least 7 days prior to trip. Leaders may also list more specific instructions such as ‘don’t call during work hours’.
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.
Fitness and activity gradings
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.
Each walk will list a difficulty grading. A description of each grading is available at the bottom of this page.
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. Click Here for form
Walk Leaders reserve the right to change the walk route on the day depending on prevailing conditions and altered circumstances.
