Our club has about 60 members. Anyone aged 18 or over is welcome. At present the membership ranges from early middle age upwards.
We welcome visitors who wish to sample the experience of bushwalking. Walking as a visitor is the starting point for prospective members. Important: It is club policy that walk participants must provide evidence of double vaccination against Covid-19. (How do I get started?).
Joining our club

The walk leader will sign a combined walks record and application form at the end of each walk. This form has entries for all 3 walks.
