WELCOME TO BOROONDARA BUSHWALKERS
Our club organises regular bushwalks and other outdoor activities in parks and forests near Melbourne, throughout Victoria and interstate.
Day walks are run on most Sundays, some Saturdays and some Wednesdays - usually within 1-2 hours drive from Melbourne. We carpool from Kew to reach the walk start.
We also run multi-day activities, including overnight walks (with packs) and base camps (in cabins or tents), with associated day walks. Overnight activities are usually held over long weekends and in major holiday periods, at bush locations in country Victoria and interstate.
There are regular social events and occasionally we do snow trips, rock climbing, and canoeing.
You are invited to walk with Boroondara Bushwalkers. You do not need to be an experienced bushwalker - we cater for all fitness levels, and beginners are especially welcome.
Meetings are held in the Phyllis Hore Room, rear Kew Library, Cotham Road, Kew (Melway Map 45 D6), on the third Wednesday of each month (except January), commencing at 8pm. Visitors are requested to arrive by 7.40pm.
Attending Meetings is a good way to meet members, discuss your walking interests and to join a walk. Most meetings include a bushwalking information session or a guest speaker.
We invite you to explore our website and contact us if you would like further information.
Organisation of the Club
Boroondara Bushwalkers (BBI) is an incorporated entity under the Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012 and is run by a Committee elected at the Annual General Meeting held each May.
The Club is affiliated with Bushwalking Victoria (BWV), which is the peak body for Victorian bushwalkers. BWV membership provides access to public liability insurance, personal accident insurance and training opportunities for all BBI members.
In association with BWV, the club hosted the ‘2013 Federation Day Walk’ based around Lerderderg State Park, where clubs from across Victoria came together to enjoy a range of bushwalks.
