Friends of Baw Baw

The club runs an extensive range of outdoor activities and you are welcome to join us on a “come and try basis” to experience bushwalking from a club point of view.

Club activities are graded and range from “easy” through to those suitable for “experienced bushwalkers” only. Most activities are conducted within easy reach of the Club’s membership area, but trips also go to other Victorian Regions, interstate, and occasionally overseas.

An exciting activities program is published with our monthly newsletter.

Visitors are welcome on club activities.  A fee of $5 per trip is charged – this is refundable if you become a member.  Where numbers of participants on trips are limited, club members are given priority.
