A Little More Detail About Who We Are..
The Waverley Bushwalking Club is based in the eastern Melbourne suburb of Mount Waverley, within the City of Monash.
Our members come from diverse personal, ethnic and professional backgrounds. The one thing we all share is the fun, fitness and enjoyment that comes from sharing the walking experience in Australia’s natural environment.
Our size, coupled with our training and support regime, means we have a large pool of leaders we can draw upon. On average, almost a third of our members lead (or co-lead) a walk each year. We believe this makes us unique, and ensures a great diversity in the styles, locations and grades of walks we offer. We offer both first-aid and leadership training for those of our members who wish to extend their walking experience to planning and running walks, which brings with it a great level of satisfaction.
Our club’s operations are managed by a website called OnTrax. This allows our members to view an up-to-date walk program, book onto walks online, and maintain their current membership and emergency contact information.
The club is overseen by our Committee comprising nine members. We are affiliated with Bushwalking Victoria, Victoria’s peak body for bushwalkers. And we are a registered organisation with Consumer Affairs Victoria (reg. no. A0013370Z).
