Bushwalkers of Western Australia





Walking is a year round activity. Bushwalkers of Western Australia Inc (BOWA) based in Perth has a complete annual programme. In Winter (May to October) longer walks of up to 20km in length are undertaken. These require a full day and most of the information about walking presented here applies to these walks. From time to time the Winter programme will include, for variety, a shorter half day walk.  In Summer members maintain fitness by shorter walks around the Perth environs which are completed before midday. On almost every Sunday of the year it is possible to sample the experience of walking with our club. How do I get started?


Bushwalkers of Western Australia Inc (BOWA) is a small informal bushwalking club. We promote and facilitate bushwalking mostly on weekends in the wild areas around Perth. Less frequent outings are held in the more distant reaches of Western Australia such as the Stirling Ranges and Dwellingup. 

The activity of the club is walking in the winter months. The walks are mostly full day with occassional half day walks. Walks are held on almost every Sunday between May and October and range in length from 12 to 20 km for full day, shorter for half day. We usually begin at 9:00 am from one of the designated meeting points and aim to be back by 4:00 pm. The walk leader chooses the places to stop for morning tea and lunch.

You are welcome to join us as a visitor to sample the experience of bushwalking.
