There are clubs of all sizes with many offering walks across Victoria, interstate and even overseas. Most clubs welcome people new to bushwalking and you are certain to find experienced members willing to pass on their knowledge to beginners. Some of our clubs conduct training specifically for people new to bushwalking. Club membership is not expensive with most annual membership fees ranging from $35-$60.

It is usually not necessary to become a member to join an activity, with most clubs welcoming visitors along for a trial.
