Bushwalking Victoria Advice to clubs on COVID-19 [707] | Blog

COVID image


Along with the rest of the community, we are concerned about and monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and are thinking of you, your families and friends. The safety and health of our members, volunteers, supporters, staff and the Victorian community are our first priority - we are following the advice of health experts and the government.


Bushwalking Victoria activities

Further to increasing COVID-19 restrictions, please note that most Bushwalking Victoria activities have been cancelled until end of June 2020. This includes training, BTAC activities, the Leadership forum and all other face-to-face activities. A separate advice will be sent about the AGM.

Bushwalking Victoria admin and support is continuing but the office at Westerfolds Park is now closed until further notice. 


Advice to bushwalking and outdoors clubs

The Bushwalking Victoria Board advises all bushwalking and outdoors clubs to:

  • Postpone or cancel face-to-face events, meetings and activities at least until the end of June 2020.
  • Remove activities listed on websites or mark them as cancelled with an explanation and do not distribute activity programs until the end of June 2020.
  • Follow Victorian state government directions, rules and advice on COVID-19.


For the future

We look forward to everyone resuming and enjoying bushwalking and outdoor activities when it is safe and appropriate to do so.

Colin Macdonald
President, Bushwalking Victoria
