Join a Club

Queenslands steep mountain ranges,
cool rainforests, spectacular gorges,
craggy pinnacles and cascading
waterfalls provide endless
opportunities for magnificent
bushwalking. The knowledge
and experience within a club
ensures that you can discover
these areas safely and with
maximum enjoyment.

No local club in your area?

If you are a bushwalker in a part of Queensland that does not have a local club, how about starting one? There are probably many others near you that would prefer to walk in a group to share their knowledge and experience of different routes and tracks - and of course it is safer walking together.

Bushwalking Queensland can help with the formalities of setting up a club and providing advice on running it. You can then benefit from the experiences of many bushwalkers from affiliated clubs throughout the state. Contact the Secretary if you want to start a club.
