The following information will help you decide if bushwalking is for you.

The best way to decide if you're a bushwalker is to take a walk with us. Hopefully it will open a new door in your life, one that gives you much enjoyment, improved health and lots of new like minded friends.

WALKS IN OUR ACTIVITIES PROGRAM:  Some walk grades and distances are estimates only or have been taken from published information.  Walks are graded mainly on the terrain encountered, not the distance. The Walk Leader grades the walk based on his/her assessment.  Some people may find the walk harder than what its graded, it all depends on your fitness level and expectations.  Its your responsibility to decide if you are fit enough to attend the published walk, taking into consideration the grade and distance of the walk along with specific track notes from the Leader.  Most members find the hills the hardest part of bushwalking, so its sensible to start with easier grade walks or a medium grade walk that of 10km or less.

THE ACTIVITIES PROGRAM CAN BE ACCESSED ON THE  HOME PAGE.

GRADES:

EASY:   Flat or undulating terrain, usually on made tracks or paths. Moderate fitness required.                                         

MEDIUM:  Hilly terrain and possibly some off-track sections, river crossings, rock walking. A good fitness level required.                      

HARD:  Possible scenarios: Steep hills, rough terrain, rock scrambling, creek crossings, river walking, off-track sections and long distances.  A very good fitness level is required plus a positive attitude, a sense of adventure and a great sense of humour.
