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.


Wednesday 18 November 2015 at 8pm - at The Hall, Hughes Baptist Church, 32-34 Groom St, Hughes. Members and non-members most welcome.

At the meeting, Jono Lineen will give a presentation on his recent book "Into the Heart of the Himalayas" about his solo trek through the Western Himalayas after the tragic death of his younger brother. His four-month, 2700 km trek from Pakistan to Nepal and his years living in the Himalayas were 'a quest to honour and understand the lands and people of the greatest mountain range on earth'.

Signed copies of the book will be on sale.

There will also be a short (5 min) presentation on the features and use of the Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) and 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.
