What we're about
At Melbourne Bushwalkers (https://mbw.org.au/index.php) we offer a full program of walking activities throughout the year, ranging from our regular Sunday, Saturday & weekday day-walks to multi-day camping and longer pack-carry trips, with lots of options in between. A unique feature of our Sunday day-walks is the bus we provide. Sit back and relax in comfort traveling to and from your walk. Enjoy unique walks without the time lost in a long car shuffle.

This Meetup is only a door to some of our activities, selected walks and events which we think would appeal to beginning walkers as well as those more experienced. To participate in advertised walks as a visitor you must come to our club rooms to talk with the leaders about the walk and your bushwalking experience. A simple RSVP lets us know of your interest but does not add your name to the booking list. (Members of the club can book online.) To view our full program visit our online program of activities (https://mbw.org.au/mbw_activities/MBW_activities_program.php).
We are strategically located in the CBD on the first floor of the Royal Historical Society's building at the corner of William and A’Beckett Streets. The entrance to the clubroom is located on William Street and the address is 362 William Street (Melway 2F, B2), just up William Street from Flagstaff train station. The clubrooms are open on Wednesday evenings between 7:00pm and 8:45pm.
The club suits all levels of bushwalking and hiking experience. Benefit comes from the club beyond the walks - membership includes access to practical training (first-aid, bushwalking leadership, bush navigation, GPS navigation), bushwalking gear hire (backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, sleeping mats etc.) and social, educational & ecological activities.
