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 - usually within 1-2 hours drive from Melbourne. We carpool from Kew to reach the walk start (currently own transport is used due to Covid-19 protocols).
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.
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 to check-in using the Service Victoria QR scanner.
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.
