For bushwalking clubs in the Melbourne Metropolitan Area

Bushwalking Clubs in Metro Melbourne can not offer walks programs at the moment and must stay in touch online. The details are here. 

For bushwalking clubs in Regional Victoria

From 11:59pm on 16 September, regional communities will progress to the Third Step of the reopening roadmap. The details are here. The two pertinent sections for bushwalking clubs are:

'Exercise and recreation: Outdoor contact and non-contact sport for people aged 18 and younger, outdoor non-contact sport only for adults, with gathering and density limits, outdoor skateparks open, outdoor fitness for groups of 10 people.

'Public gatherings of up to 10 people outdoors are allowed.'

Regional bushwalking clubs in Victoria can thus commence offering walks programs for no more than 10 walkers at a time, adhering to government COVID-19 rules for travel, social distancing, hand hygiene, and mask-wearing.
