There's nothing like going bush with reliable and experienced bushwalkers to brush up on your skills not to mention the social benefits!  To help you on the way here are two websites offering thorough guidelines to restart or start your bush adventures.


  • The Bushwalking Manual: Information and guidelines for safe and enjoyable bushwalking in Australia is published by Bushwalking Victoria, and provides one of the best guides to safe bushwalking in Australia. You can find it at: https://bushwalkingmanual.org.au/
  • If you are new to bushwalking, and indeed if you need a refresher or have relative novices in your group, the National Parks Association of NSW Bushwalking 101 website is also of great help. You can find this at: https://bushwalking101.org/
