Policies and Guidelines
Bushwalking Victoria develops policies on major issues that affect bushwalking and recreational walking. These policies underpin our advocacy for bushwalkers when dealing with land managers and government on outdoor recreation issues, preservation of natural areas, and the management of and access to public land.
Bushwalking Victoria also provides guidelines to assist member clubs to establish operating procedures for their needs.
