Monthly meetings - Note Location Change

Meetings from May 2024 to October 2024 will be held in Meeting Room 1, Balwyn Library, 336 Whitehorse Road, Balwyn (Melway Map 46 E8), on the third Wednesday of each month, commencing at 8pm. Visitors are requested to arrive by 7.40pm and make themselves known at the reception.

Attending meetings is a good way to meet members and to learn about recent and forthcoming bushwalks.  

Most meetings include a guest speaker; our Current Program of Speakers is available here.

Our Club

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.
