The Grampians Bushwalking Club was formed in 1994 following a public meeting at Stawell. Walks took place every fortnight, alternating between Saturday and Sunday.
The club has roamed far and wide in the pursuit of a good walk. Some of the areas visited: Mt Gambier, Mt Buffalo, Mt Kosciusko, the Otways, St Arnaud, Castlemaine, Werribee Gorge, Daylesford, Creswick, Blackwood, Warrnambool, sections of the Great South West Walk, sections of the Surf Coast Walk, sections of the Great Ocean Walk, South Australia - Wilpena Pound, and Queensland - Sunshine Coast. Of course, the Grampians have been explored extensively. We have joined other clubs on walks and have had other clubs join us.
The club has taken on the maintenance of some tracks in the Grampians, including Heatherlie Quarry, Wartook Lookout, and the track to Mt Difficult from Long Point Fireline Track. The club has also indicated they are willing to help in the construction of Park Victoria's Grampians Peaks Trail.
On Saturday 27 September, the Grampians Bushwalking Club is celebrating its 20th anniversary at the Community Hall in Halls Gap with lunch and a social afternoon. All walkers who have walked with Grampians Bushwalking Club are invited to share this celebration with us. Bring along your photographs and memorabilia. On Sunday 28 September, the club will repeat the first walk - Sundial Peak.
For more information about the anniversary or to register to attend, contact the President, Jenny Cray on 0408 345 387. RSVP by 22 September.
