SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY: It is understood that some members may like to publish photographs from walks on social media platforms. Due to the sensitivity of many of the areas we walk in (cultural, environmental, National Park, private property) we ask that members and guests refrain from outlining specific details of the walk. For example, access, route taken etc.
Grading of Walks
We are proposing to use the Australian Walking Tracks Grading System (click on the text to the left for a definition). This grading is as used by NSW National Parks and gives a grade of 1 - 5 with 5 being the hardest.
A reminder that membership renewals are due from January each year.
See the Membership Section for details.
