  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.

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.)
