New members are welcome and invited to come with us on one or two trial walks before joining as a club member. However, unless you are an experienced bush walker, you must take an easy to medium grade walk initially.

Click on the "Contact Us" tab to get more information about joining our club and booking your first walk. You will be sent the appropriate forms to complete and bring on that walk. You may also be contacted by the walk leader to discuss the suitability of the walk you have requested.

Members of Bushwalking Victoria or another club affiliated with Bushwalking Victoria are also welcome to join us on our walks and will also need to click on the "Contact Us" tab.


Our membership year is from 1 July until 30 June the following year.

Our membership fees are set at our Annual General Meeting for the following year. They are currently:

                                   $35 for members aged 60 and over

                                   $40 for those aged 18-59

                             $70 for families (2 adults and children)

                             Children under 18 years of age are free

If you are a member of another club affiliated with Bushwalking Victoria and nominate Melton Bushwalkers as a secondary club you are entitled to a discount of $25 per adult member.

The yearly membership fees cover accident and public liability insurance but members are strongly encouraged to maintain their own ambulance cover, as the club insurance only provides limited ambulance cover.


New members joining after 1 January are only charged half the yearly fee.


A $2 walk fee is charged for each adult member attending a club walk, which is payable on the day when signing the walk register.
