How to

Want to

- improve your fitness
- explore national parks, reserves and wilderness
- meet new people
- learn bush craft and navigation?



The Canberra Bushwalking Club offers all this and more, with an activity program that caters for all levels of experience. Our walk leaders are experienced and know the best places to walk around Canberra and further afield; they will be happy to share their knowledge with you.

In a typical week, the Club program might offer you

- an evening walk of about two hours to one of the hilltops in the Canberra urban area
- a day walk in a national park or reserve on tracks and through grasslands
- a more challenging day walk exploring a creek that cascades through rain forest
- a weekend walk to, say, the Budawangs, an area of spectacular cliffs, caves and waterfalls.

The Club also offers extended activities - for example a series of day walks from budget accommodation in an alpine area, or a ten day, carry-everything adventure through remote parts of Kakadu. Other activities include cross-country skiing, canoeing, cycling and canyoning. The Club also runs classes on finding your way in the bush – map and compass navigation as well as GPS navigation.

Come for a walk with us if you are interested in becoming a member.


The next CBC meeting will be at 7.30pm on Wednesday 20th September 2017 in The Hall, Hughes Baptist Church, 32-34 Groom Street, Hughes. The Hall is accessed externally via the car park on the left side of the building (as viewed from the street). Members and non-members most welcome.

This is the Annual General Meeting (AGM) so come along to support your Club and hear how much it has achieved in the past year. We also need your vote to elect a new committee - you might even consider nominating for a position. A list of the committee positions is in the September it. Come along and enjoy an evening of interesting insights into the Club’s operations.

Some leaders of walks in the current and next month will be on hand with maps to answer your questions and show you walk routes etc.


The September 2017 edition of the Newsletter is now available online. Members will receive an email with a link to it, and can also view it via the Members Page.

This edition covers the AGM with details of club activities over the last year, the president's report and other articles including a report on the Zac Zaharias presentation at the August meeting on walking in the Owen Stanley Ranges in PNG.
