Warren Bonython Memorial Water Tanks Project

Warren Bonython, patron of Adelaide Bushwalkers for many years, bequest $10,000 to Adelaide Bushwalkers. The Committee agreed some time ago to use the bequest to construct water tanks in remoter parts of the state where the more adventurous bushwalkers could make good use of them. It would be preferable that they be located on private property in an area well away from car access.
