Founded in 1944 the Melbourne University Mountaineering Club was one of the first outdoor adventure clubs in Australia. Particularly in the early decades MUMC members were pioneers many areas of adventure recreation in Australia. Bushwalkers mapped unexplored areas, rock climbers discovered new climbing areas and put up new routes, and thousands of students were introduced to new outdoor adventures.
While much has changed, just as much has stayed the same in the club's history. The club has long been a place where students and alumni have come together for adventure and fun times in a welcoming community.
Compiled from old notes, minutes and records in our archives, this timeline of notable events serves only as an overview of the Club's history.
