What happens next?

Prospective Membership
When your application is processed, details of your Prospective Membership will be advised by email and a Welcome Pack will be posted to you. You will immediately be able to join in our Club activities. As a Prospective Member you must book in for each trip by phoning the trip coordinator before attending.

Gaining Full Membership
To gain full membership of the Club, you must complete three qualifying trips and a Club Essential Skills Day within 12 months of becoming a Prospective Member.

  • Two of the qualifying trips must be qualifying Club walks.
  • The third could be a hut working bee, a Club organised track clearing day, a training weekend, a cycling trip of at least 35 kms, a kayak trip of a least 14 nautical miles or another qualifying Club walk.
  • The Essential Skills Day is an opportunity to learn about the Club. It includes some basic instruction in bushcraft, what to put in your pack, map reading and use of a compass, survival and care of the bush environment along with information on navigating the Club website.

A Full Member of at least 12 months standing (usually the New Members Officer) will then nominate you for Full Membership.

If you are currently a member of another Australian bushwalking club, you may apply for exemption from the prospective stage of membership. If you wish to discuss this, please contact the New Members Officer.
