Bushwalking

DAY WALKS

Our day walks range from easy half day walks on tracks which are suitable for people new to bushwalking, through to longer walks of over 20 km, or off track walks with extensive scrambling. On all walks you must carry enough water and food for the entire trip, plus some spare in case the trip is delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. Guidance on what is involved is given in the walk description in the Club program. We recommend that new walkers start off with walks of grade 1-3.

See the section on Walk Gradings for a detailed explanation of walk grades.

 

 

OVERNIGHT AND EXTENDED WALKS

Our overnight walks range from easy on track weekend walks, to off track and exploratory weekend walks and extended trips of a week or more. Walkers on overnight and extended walks must have a level of fitness that is sufficient to carry food, water and camping equipment.

We usually mention on the program if an overnight or extended walk is suitable for new walkers,however if you are not sure if a walk is suitable for you please contact the activity organiser. We recommend that you would have to be fit enough to do a day walk of medium grade before attempting most overnight walks. The Club has camping equipment which is available for loan to members participating in Club activities.
