Our club organises regular bushwalks and other outdoor activities in parks and forests near Melbourne, throughout Victoria and interstate.
Day walks are run on most Sundays, some Saturdays and some Wednesdays or Thursdays - usually within 1-2 hours drive from Melbourne, but also within metropolitan Melbourne. Unless advised otherwise or Covid-19 restrictions intervene, we generally carpool from Kew to reach the walk start. Walkers may choose not to take part in carpooling - if so, please advise the leader prior to the walk.
We also run multi-day activities, including overnight walks (with packs) and base camps (in cabins or tents), with associated day walks. Overnight activities are usually held over long weekends and in major holiday periods, at bush locations in country Victoria and interstate.
There are regular social events and occasionally we do snow trips, cycling, and canoeing.
You are invited to walk with Boroondara Bushwalkers. You do not need to be an experienced bushwalker - we cater for all fitness levels, and beginners are especially welcome.
There is additional information for visitors under the Visitors menu on this web-site.
Meetings are held in the Phyllis Hore Room, rear Kew Library, Cotham Road, Kew (Melway Map 45 D6), on the third Wednesday of each month (except January), commencing at 8pm. Visitors are requested to arrive by 7.40pm and make themselves known at the reception.
In accordance with the Library's Covid Safe requirements, only fully vaccinated people can be admitted.
Attending meetings is a good way to meet members, learn more about bushwalking and to join a walk.
Most meetings include a guest speaker and a bushwalking information session. Our current program of speakers is available here.
We invite you to explore our website and contact us if you would like further information.
