Before you join, we encourage you to first come along to one of our New Members Information Nights. This especially applies if you haven't done much bushwalking before. There are many different sorts of bushwalking, and you'll have an opportunity to find out about Sydney Bush Walkers, and whether our activities are what you are looking for. The Information Nights also provide lots of info on what you need to know once you join, so even if you can't make one before you join, come along to one afterwards.
You first join as a Prospective Member for 12 months at the cost of only $55. You will receive the Quarterly Activity Program, Information Booklet and be added to the email distribution list.
