The Bushwalker magazine

Armidale Bushwalking Club was formed in late 2004. We have about 50 members, and run walks about once a fortnight. Usually there’s one or two day trips, and a more challenging backpack every month.  The club also brings people together to organise their own trips, from an afternoon stroll to extended overseas backpacks. 

We are developing a loose association between the five clubs surrounding the Guy Fawkes river- a kind of “Fawkes Fraternity”.  We share programs, ideas and trips.

We have some great parks to walk in New England, Guy Fawkes River, Cathedral Rock, Oxley Wild Rivers, Gibraltar Range, Chaelundi.  In all there

26 national Parks and reserves in the New England area.

An extensive range of walks

It’s a good place to get started in bushwalking. You can borrow gear from the club’s store, find out about great places to walk, share costs and ideas, and especially walk safely with some very experienced people. Membership gives you access to walks with all of the NSW Confederation of Bushwalking Clubs, and excellent Public Liability and Personal Accident insurance.   

            Hope to see you on the track. Joc Coventry President.

You too can lead a walk
