If you enjoy the great outdoors, then Bushwalking is one of the best ways to experience and appreciate what nature has to offer. Numerous benefits, including physical challenges, skills development and the opportunity to meet new people.
We offer a full program of bushwalking activities throughout the year, ranging from our local easy evening walks, to longer backpacking trips, with many options in between.
Easy – are amongst our most popular walks and can range from an after work stroll to a full day in the mountains.
Medium – generally longer and may involve travelling up to 1 – 2 hours into the surrounding areas and Alps.
These walks allow participants to enjoy all that a day walk offers, plus the ability to venture further and camp overnight , experiencing a night (s) in the bush. It involves carrying all your gear (tent, bedding, stoves, food & essential clothing) in a larger and heavier backpack.
As for Overnighters, but these walks range from several days to week(s) allowing participants to travel into and experience remote natural environments for longer periods. Packs will be a lot heavier.
