Basic Skills Workshops are also a great training opportunity. Volunteer facilitators will lead you through hands on navigation learning exercises, and discuss bushcraft, safety and first aid in the bush.
The Workshops are held every three months at Centennial Park. They typically start at 8am and finish around 4pm. See the Activities Program (members only, login required) for scheduling.
It is recommended that you do at least one day walk with the club before signing up for a Basic Skills Workshop, but do make sure you attend a Workshop in your first 12 months.
Experienced walkers who join the Club can still benefit from attending the Workshops. They can learn more about the Club’s culture and contribute to the discussion.
That said, Prospective Members:
• with extensive experience (eg leading walks) in another Bushwalking Club(s),
• who have demonstrated advanced skill levels in navigation and bushcraft on their Q walks, and
• who hold a current first aid certificate
may apply to the Committee for an alternative qualifying pathway for this requirement.
