Who We Are

We are a local community bushwalking club of around 150-200 members and based in the city of Launceston, Tasmania, an island state off the southeast of mainland Australia.

Our Objectives:
To encourage and promote bushwalking and other allied outdoor activities.
To support the conservation of scenic areas, flora and fauna.
To support the maintenance of walking tracks.
To foster social activity amongst club members.

The Club:
Our club caters for varying age groups both in the bush and socially. We plan walks which range from easy day walks to harder, longer walks involving overnight camping. Weekend walks usually depart on Friday nights, whilst day walks are usually held on Sundays. For some walks a high level of fitness is required, as is experience in alpine conditions. For other walks a fair level of fitness and a degree of enthusiasm is all that is required.

We aim to help members:
Develop an appreciation of wilderness and scenic areas, native flora and fauna.
Make friends with members who have similar interests.
Gain the necessary skills to enjoy bushwalking safely.
Visit some of Tasmania's most scenic spots.

Club Trips:
Walks are held on most weekends throughout the year and details of each are given on the Walks Program and in the Club's circular 'Langana'. Most trips use the Club's own bus while Trip Coordinators organise cars on other trips.
There is a very active mountain biking programme on our calendar with rides ranging from easy to technical and our experienced members can always help and guide the newer and less experienced members to this adventurous activity.
We have a very active Social Committee which always has something on the go, especially on those weekends when there is only a day walk planned. We enjoy bush dancing, film nights, progressive dinners, and meals at the local pub.
