About us

 The Walking Club of Victoria (WCV) (founded in 1947) is a Melbourne based bush walking club catering for men, women and families of all ages. Club members come from all parts of Melbourne. The club conducts activities 52 weeks of the year consisting of bush walks, suburban walks, base camp walks and overnight pack carries. These activities are supplemented by cycling and other active and social pursuits. Interstate excursions and occasional overseas trips extend the walking horizons. Membership is small enough to avoid being impersonal, resulting in close and on-going companionship.

Bush walks are scheduled for every Sunday of the year. These typically take place in National Parks or other suitable bushlands within easy reach of Melbourne. Wednesday walks are less strenuous and provide a pleasant mid-week social atmosphere. These walks take place in the suburban green areas or in the nearby hills with the occasional trip further afield using Metro trains. Base camps, pack carries and other walking trips are organised on a less frequent basis but are essentially an extension of the Sunday bush walks. For more details on walks click here.

The club meets on the first Thursday of each month (except January) to discuss the forthcoming events and listen to "Guest Speakers" or some other form of entertainment. The club house is currently located in Mount Waverley in Melbourne’s east. The club also produces two quarterly publications for all financial members.

  1. The program of events covers the walks and other functions for the next three months.
  2. “Contour Lines” is the club newsletter covering past events, news and future events.

The best part of the WCV club is undoubtedly its members and their companionship. Members come from all walks of life and have varied interests and backgrounds but share a common love for the bush and for walking. Many members have a great many years' experience of walking in Victoria and no matter what the walk, someone will have been there before. With this sort of club background, the WCV is as much a family as it is a walking club.
