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.

Printable Booklet (Use the printable Guide to Bushwalking if you want to print it on A4 paper on a double-sided printer. The result is a collated A5 booklet.)
