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.

NEXT CLUB MEETING

8pm Wednesday 15th June 2016 in The Hall, Hughes Baptist Church, 32-34 Groom Street, Hughes. Members and non-members most welcome.

At the meeting Meg McKone will present "Exploring Jennings Gorges in the East MacDonnells". In August 2015 a group from the club spent a week exploring ridges and gorges in the East MacDonnells in Central Australia, followed by a nine day walk in the West MacDonnells. The presentation will focus on the East Macs but will also include highlights of Portals Canyon, and sunset and sunrise shots from a summit of the Chewings Range.

Also at the meeting some of the leaders of walks being conducted in the following month will be on hand with maps to answer your questions and show you walk routes etc.
