The Canberra Bushwalking Club organises walks in the Canberra and south east NSW region and sometimes further afield. The club aims to provide an interesting and varied program of walks each weekend, ranging in difficulty from easy day and part-day walks suitable for beginners through to multi day off track walks for experienced walkers only.
A modified version of the latest activity program is available here. For privacy and security reasons, the names and telephone numbers of most leaders have been removed. To become a member you first need to go on a walk. The club maintains a Facebook page to showcase activities and advertise events and is affiliated with NSW Confederation of Bushwalking Clubs.
The club meets at 8pm on the third Wednesday of the month (except December and January) at Hughes Baptist Church, 32-34 Groom Street, Hughes. Many of the programs are illustrated talks about walks people have done, while others are designed to inform members about various aspects of walking. Non-members are welcome at these meetings. In December and January, the meetings are replaced by a Christmas Party and an outdoors social event (barbecue or picnic) at a location close to Canberra.
The club has published a book called Finding your way in the bush. Click on the link for more information.
