Did You Know?

Our club is affiliated with Bushwalking NSW - from a genesis of just 10 bushwalking clubs in 1932, Bushwalking NSW has evolved to become one of Australia’s foremost outdoor recreation groups, consisting of 66 affiliated clubs representing the interests of more than 10,300 bushwalkers.

The tradition of caring for the natural environment, campaigning for the protection of precious forests and encouraging the bushwalking community to engage with each other and the broader community has continued into the 21st century.

Bushwalking NSW joined the national umbrella organisation Bushwalking Australia at its formation in 2003. This organisation brokers the annual insurance policies for all affilated clubs. An updated version of the Risk Management Guidelines for clubs has just been released - you can access it here
