Bushwalking in Sydney

Come and explore the Australian bush with All Nations Bushwalkers. Visit beautiful national parks and wilderness areas around Sydney and further afield, even interstate. We have a graded series of walks (day walks, weekend camping trips and longer), bike rides and water-based activities, and there's a social program too. Join us

We publish a bushwalking and social program every 3 months.

Most of our activities involve bushwalking in the national parks within 100km of Sydney, including the Blue Mountains, Ku-ring-gai Chase, Royal, Wollemi, Bouddi, Brisbane Waters, Dharug, Marramarra and Sydney Harbour national parks, or the parks and reserves of the NSW Southern Highlands and Illawarra regions.

We have walks which suit a wide range of fitness and experience levels. Most are day walks, ranging from quite easy to rather hard. There are weekend overnight camping trips, and longer extended expeditions have included destinations all over Australia - bushwalking by day, enjoying the companionship of the campfire at night. Great fun.

To go bushwalking for a day, you need appropriate footwear (eg walking boots or joggers with good grip), a rain jacket and a small backpack to carry lunch, first aid kit and water. Information on what to bring.

You can also go on social activities, including restaurant nights, cinema and art gallery visits, Christmas parties and various special outings.

Getting to an activity is easy. We generally meet at a train station and then car pool to the walking track. You won't get lost and don't need your own transport!

Our members are men and women of all ages and nationalities from across the Sydney area.

Membership is only $30 per year over 3 years ($90 total), $35 per year for 2 years ($70 total), or $45 for one year, plus $15 per year for each additional family member (if they join the club). This pays for insurance, the newsletter, etc. Unlike some other clubs, you do not have to pay the club a fee each time you go on an activity (but you may be asked to contribute to car pooling costs).

To join us, fill in the online membership form, and electronically pay the membership fee.

Or give it a try first. Simply choose a bushwalk on the program and contact the organiser. Say you are thinking of joining the club. He or she will describe the activity so you and the walk leader can see if it is suitable for you. Visitors can try one walk for free before they're expected to join the club.
