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 20 January: - from 6pm onwards at the end of Black Mountain Peninsula.

In January, instead of our monthly meeting the CBC traditionally has a BBQ. You are invited to come and share your holiday experiences with your Club friends while enjoying a self catered BBQ or picnic: 6 pm Wednesday 20 January 2016, Black Mountain Peninsula.

Follow the CBC signs on Garryowen Drive.

If barbecues are disabled because of fire danger, bring a picnic tea and still enjoy the company of friends.


The December 2015 edition of the Newsletter is now available online. Members by now should have received an email with a link to it, and can also view it via the Members Page.
