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.


8pm Wednesday 19th October 2016 in The Hall, Hughes Baptist Church, 32-34 Groom Street, Hughes. Members and non-members most welcome.

At the meeting Rowan Peck will talk about one of the NZ Great Walks through volcanic wilderness, plus a selection of lesser known wilderness trails perfect for filling a spare weekend or three near Auckland. He will also look at where to get your planning information, what to take, and some hut guidance.

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.


The October 2016 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.

This issue includes reports and outcomes from the 2016 Annual General Meeting of the club.
