Next Information Night 

SBW is running an Information Night on Zoom on Thursday, 24 September. You can  register as soon as the activity is included under Events below.  SBW has decided not to run in-house Information Nights for the time being due to restrictions on attendance due to COVID. Register and we will send you the link a day beforehand. 

Meanwhile many National Parks are reopening and the walks program is nearly back to normal though interstate, international trips, and social nights are still not possible.

Are Sydney Bush Walkers Right for You? 

You like a challenge and can handle the tough stuff ?

The qualifying requirements for full membership include completing two day walks with at least six hours walking duration and some element of difficulty like rough terrain or a big climb. You must also complete an overnight walk, camping and carrying a pack, usually in rugged country.  

You will also need to show you are ready to tackle a Qualifying walk before you can be accepted on one. 

SBW is more selective than many other clubs but you can give yourself a big pat on the back when you achieve full membership status. 

It has been that way since 1927 when foundation members like Myles Dunphy and Paddy Pallin created a club with a strong tradition of adventure.
