YOUR FIRST WALK;: As a new member, you're required to complete an easy, easy/medium or medium grade walk with us. This allows you to decide if bushwalkings right for you and allows the walk leader to assess your ability, fitness level and bushwalking skills. If you find you can handle these walk grades without too much effort, your welcome to progress to harder walks.

_______________________________________________________________

GOING ON YOUR FIRST WALK WITH US:

From the 'Activities Program', on the 'HOME' page, select a walk that's graded Easy, Easy/Medium or Medium.  

Next go to the 'CONTACT US' page for details to email our Club Secretary stating which walk you'd like to join and ask for the walk leader's phone number. 

Lastly, you'll need to complete the Membership Application Forms which will be emailed to you and bring them to your first walk.
