Our club was formed in 1975, and we are a group of people who enjoy outdoor activities in the bush and areas in Victoria. Our activities include bushwalking, base camps, pack walks, bike rides and social outings.   We travel to areas in the Greater Melbourne region, rural Victoria and interstate for our activities.   Our club caters for a wide variety of interests and fitness levels; and visitors and potential new members are welcome to participate in our activities.

For further details about our club, visitors are welcome to attend our meetings held at 7:30pm on the second Wednesday of every month at he Moonee Ponds Bowling Club, 776 Mt Alexander Road (Quenns Park), Moonee Ponds, or email us at: This email address is being protected from spambots.
