June Long Weekend Bus Trip – Parachilna Gorge

June Long Weekend Bus Trip – Parachilna Gorge

6pm Fri 5th June - 7pm Mon 8th Jun 2015

Our annual June Long Weekend Bus Trip will be to Parachilna Gorge in the Flinders Ranges.

Register for a walk now, and make your bus payment to guarantee your place on the trip.

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 7:30pm on the 1st Wednesday 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.
