 CMW Guide to Bushwalking

The club has put together a CMW Guide To Bushwalking  with information on how to join a walk, what to take, suggestions on food that will keep you sustained, etiquette in the bush, map and compass use, together with a checklist of gear to take on a typical walk.

People new to overnight walking will find the guide particularly useful, and will answer many of those questions you may have.

Club Meetings

As a prospective member we encourage you to attend club meetings so that you can meet members and find out what the club offers and discuss which walks would be suitable for your abilities and commitments.

Prospective membership allows you to walk with the Club, at which point you can begin qualifying for full membership.
