The Club offers a varied activity program which includes weekend and midweek walks, twilight walks in summer, backpacks, car camps, liloing, still water canoeing, and extended trips in our local region as well as interstate and overseas.

Our regular meetings on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month are held at 7.30pm in the Uniting Church Hall, 24 Milson Street, Charlestown and include reports of recent activities and planning for those coming up, guest  speakers, supper and a social catch up.

Meeting places and times for activities are shown on the Activity Program or as advised by the leader. It is essential that you contact the leader to join an activity – please don’t just turn up.

Activities are graded as shown on the program. Select activities that you believe are within your capability, but check with the leader if in any doubt.

Visitors are covered by the Club’s personal accident insurance policy and are very welcome to join in for up to three activities before applying for membership of the Club.
