New Members Weekend

Sat 9 – Sun 10 May 2015, Kuitpo Forest

This weekend is aimed at new members to Adelaide Bushwalkers and offers an introduction to all things bushwalking including tips on gear, food, bush hygiene and safety.

Hiking gear for hire at reasonable rates. Try out gear before you buy your own.

Checklist of equipment, food ideas, water, first aid list, rules, minimal impact bushwalking and what to do if you get lost.

Joining ABW takes you to new places you may never have heard of, off the beaten track, and to have new experiences.

Meetings 8pm on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, in the hall at the North Adelaide Community Centre.

From Our Blog

We responded to the Australian Government's consultation on the Draft Walking Strategy for Kakadu.
Our annual photo competition garnered 96 entries across six categories. There was a tremendous range of top quality photos from ABW activities, and from member's hikes all over the world including India, China, New Zealand and Turkey.
Many of us have received tuition in first aid and in how to treat a patient for snakebite. Immobilise the injured limb and apply a pressure bandage along the affected limb. Easy. But how tight does the bandage have to be? We're getting it wrong, this product fixes that problem.
A reflection on a life of bushwalking and joining the Adelaide Bushwalkers.
